postTV is a new platform for exhibiting and producing experimental video and performance. Both a website and live-event series, postTV provides artists with the opportunity and resources to participate and share their innovations. The postTV crew includes videographers, set-builders, costume designers, editors, and various technicians joining together to produce visionary video and performative works. postTV.org will offer a daily schedule of programs consisting of curated video submissions along with works produced by the postTV crew. postTV : LIVE events are opportunities for the postTV community to come together in a collective space beyond the web to share and witness new work that has come to fruition through collaboration with the postTV production crew.

ABOUT THE INTERN INITIATIVE
The Intern Initiative is a program begun in the fall of 2009 at Cabinet. It aims to bring together interns from a wide range of non-profit institutions across New York City in order to encourage a dialogue on the role of unpaid internships in contemporary society. Additionally, the Intern Initiative offers the opportunity for New York City area interns to collaboratively plan public cultural events at Cabinet's exhibition space.

Cabinet is a non-profit organization supported by the Lambent Foundation, the Orphiflamme Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, the New York State Council on the Arts, the Katchadourian Family Foundation, and many generous individuals. All our events are free, the entire content of our many sold-out issues are on our site for free, and we offer our magazine and books at prices that are considerably below cost.
