Contemporary Art Television Fund

The Institute of Contemporary Art and WGBH-TV in Boston collaborate to create the Contemporary Art Television Fund, which will commission and co-produce new video works. Co-Directors of the Fund are David Ross of ICA and Susan Dowling, producer at WGBH's New Television Workshop. Curator was Kathy Huffman, who had also curated at the Regional Media Art Center at the Long Beach Museum in California. The CAT Fund accepted and solicited proposals and provided assistance for production, post-production and distribution. The Fund supported not only works for television, but also installations. Funding was initially provided by WGBH, Massachusetts Council on the Arts and Humanities. The distribution program of the CAT Fund was intended to generate income for the Fund.
