Members of Collaborative Projects, Inc. (COLAB) collaboratively made live and prerecorded television for public access cable TV between 1978 and 1985. The works were broadcast as from Jim Chladek’s ETC Studios on 23rd Street which later became Manhattan Neighborhood Network. The shows were All Color News, Potato Wolf, and Red Curtain. Many of the taped shows were later gathered for distribution by Alan W. Moore, Sophie Vieille, and Michael Carter to distribute through COLAB's Monday/Wednesday/Friday Video Club during 1986-2000. Andrea Callard and Coleen Fitzgibbon began to preserve these materials in 2006 in collaboration with Moore. http://235bowery.s3.amazonaws.com/exhibitionlinks/91/XFRSTN_Artists%27Texts_pdf.pdf
