Colab members Andrea Callard and Coleen Fitzgibbon will share clips from Potato Wolf, All Color News, and Red Curtain, as well as offer their perspective on what social television-making had to say at the time, why it is important to look at it again, and especially how women artists created media during the late ’70s and early ’80s.

Coleen Fitzgibbon and Andrea Callard are both artists and filmmakers based in New York City. Between 1978 and 1980, as officers of Colab, they cocreated a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizational structure so the group could receive public funding, laying the groundwork for the first Colab live TV shows All Color News and Potato Wolf.


Generous endowment support is provided by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, the Skadden, Arps Education Programs Fund, and the William Randolph Hearst Endowed Fund for Education Programs at the New Museum.

This program is made possible, in part, through the support of the New York State Council on the Arts and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.

Education and public programs are made possible by a generous grant from Goldman Sachs Gives at the recommendation of David B. Heller & Hermine Riegerl Heller.
