Incidentally, Pleasure Dome in Toronto is screening the following piece by Aldo Tambellini (and Otto Piene) on November 28th:

Black Gate Cologne —a happening in the studio
Otto Piene and Aldo Tambellini (23 min. 1968)

Black Gate Cologne is often cited as the first television programme made by artists. It was a live event involving films, light objects and the participation of the studio audience. The close co-operation between artists and TV crew created a synthesis of live atmosphere, Light Art, experimental film and electronic image aesthetics.

Hi Bill,

good to meet with you today,
it would be great to get Aldo's email, I need to think about it, but
might want to include some of his films in the screenings at Art in

And if you remember any other exhibition venues...did you say you had
some information about Studio A?

Speak later in the week,
