People "Weekly\," the inaugural e xhibition of the CUNY Graduate Center's Amie and Tony James Gallery\, is a sequence of six specially commissioned artist projects and a small "exhibit ion-within-the exhibition" curated by the gallery's new director\, Linda No rden. Norden describes People "Weekly" as a "group show in time." The exhibition is designed to introduce new artwork directly into the dynam ic academic arena of the Graduate Center. The artists invited to contribute to People "Weekly" vary considerably\, but each artist's project responds in some way to the exceptional location and context of this midtow n\, public university gallery.

In the opening installation\, titled ‘For instance'\, Yunhee Min's theatrical drapes celebrate the gallery's expansive former-storefront windows and cla im the space for art. The curtains mimic the intervals of the galleries win dows and walls and reinforce the relationship between gallery and street by framing seductive and changing views of the pedestrian and auto traffic ou tside. On view as a solo installation for just four days in October\, Min's curtains set the stage for the exhibitions to come\, and in several instal lations\, they will be reconfigured by the artist to serve as backdrop.  \n

On Oct 8th the gallery changes to "What You Wish For"\, a small group show that contemplates the intertwined histories and shared pr actices of the department store and the gallery or museum. During the week of this year's momentous presidential election\, Linda Pollack's "Habeas Lo unge" uses an elegant\, over-sized red couch to transform the gallery into a social space for lectures and informal discussions on Habeas Corpus\, imm igration and other aspects of Constitutional Law. Where some of the project s in People "Weekly" intend to introduce art and artists into the Graduate Center community\, Pollack's "Habeas Lounge" inverts that relation ship\, making the gallery an extension of the seminar or classroom.

In November\, anthropologist Lucien Castaing Taylor's "Sheep Rushes\," pro duced with his fellow anthropologist wife\, Illisa Barbash\, will screen ex cerpts from a monumental documentary of one of the U.S.' last functional co mmercial sheep ranches. Produced over a period of eight years\, the film tr acks\, in almost hyper-real detail\, the accelerated birthing and shearing of the sheep\, as performed by paid hands on hourly wage\, and the decelera ted tending of the thousands of sheep by two lone modern-day shepherds. In December and early January\, Daniel Joseph Martinez' "the west bank is miss ing\; I am not dead am I\," comprising two huge cast aluminum "wheels of fo rtune\," introduces an angry abstract allegory addressed to the seminal rol e played by housing design in former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's vision for the West Bank settlements. Later in January\, Thomas Torres Cord ova reconstructs a two-part essay on air conditioning originally conceived as part of his Bard College MFA thesis exhibition. "Everybody Loves the Sun shine\," is a film on the history of this ubiquitous electrically fueled co oling device\; "I wish you could color correct my films for the rest of my life\," is a very literal demonstration of the benefits of those magnificen t machines and the over-heated hallucinatory visions that an air conditione d culture leaves in its wake. The exhibition comes full circle in February\ , closing by re-visiting Yunhee Min's "For instance" in its entirety.
