New Cinema Colab John Lurie James Nares


The newly formed artist group Collaborative Project Inc. (Colab) was an important part of the independent film scene.  At meetings and parties, aspiring filmmakers met and pooled resources; many contributed pages to the Colab publication X Motion Picture Magazine; funds from Colab helped launch the New Cinema, a short-lived screening room on St. Mark’s Place in the East Village; and Colab helped finance the Monday Wednesday Friday Video Club that helped distribute the films in the late 1980s and 1990s.

This poster is included in the Gallery 98 online exhibition, No Wave and Independent Film.

The No Wave and Independent films produced in downtown New York in the 1970s and 1980s are an intriguing hybrid art form that intermingles music, fashion, performance and visual art.
