Artists' Television Access
Artists' Television Access (ATA) is a non-profit art gallery and screening venue in San Francisco's Mission District in the United States of America. ATA exhibits work by emerging, independent and experimental artists in its theatre and gallery space as well as on its weekly Public-access television cable TV show and webzine. The Other Cinema series is hosted seasonally every Saturday night by experimental filmmaker and artist-in-residence Craig Baldwin.
ATA was established in 1984 by artists John Martin and Marshall Weber as a performance art space, screening venue and gallery and included an affordable video production facility located on 7th Street in San Francisco's South of Market (SOMA) district. It was one of the first organizations in San Francisco to consistently promote the work of video artists. Other artists associated with the early days of ATA include Craig Baldwin, Lise Swenson, Phil Patiris, Eva König, Rigo 23, Fred Rinne, Scott Williams and Dale Hoyt.
