Rose Goldsen Archive of New Media Art


The Electronic Media and Film Program (EMF) collection holds records of various arts and cultural organizations. In this series, materials focus on programs and events associated with specific organizations. They often take the form of newsletters, catalogs, and other press materials, while reports, correspondence, and application materials are also included. Featured organizations include renowned art museums such as Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and New Museum of Contemporary Art, as well as a wide range of film and arts festivals such as The Women's International Film & Arts Festival (WIFF) and arts publications such as Performing Arts Journal.

Although video and television largely remain its main focus (e.g., Paper Tiger Television, Inc., National Video Resources, Inc., Film/Video Arts, Inc., and Experimental Television Center), this series also features many sound-related arts organizations (e.g., Pauline Oliveros Foundation, Inc. Deep Listening Institute, Radio Catskill Inc., and The Association of Independents in Radio), and digital arts organizations (e.g. Radical Software Group).

In addition, a significant number of organizations focus on various issues of race, gender, and sexuality (e.g., New York Lesbian-Gay Experimental Film Festival, NewFest: The New York Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, & Transgender Film Festival, and Rochester Lesbian and Gay Film Festival, International Agency of Minority Artists, IAMA: Harlem Arts Council, African American Women in Cinema, Japan House Gallery, and Latino Collaborative, etc.).
