PEOPLE “WEEKLY”
OCTOBER 2, 2008 – FEBRUARY 28, 2009

People “Weekly,” the inaugural exhibition of the CUNY Graduate Center’s Amie and Tony James Gallery, is a sequential group show comprising six specially commissioned artist projects and a small “exhibition-within-the exhibition” curated by the gallery’s new director, Linda Norden.

Sheep Rushes, part four in the sequence, is the title anthropologist/filmmakers Lucien Castaing-Taylor and producer Lisa Barbash have given to a series of video works recorded between 2001 and 2005 in and around the Absaroka-Beartooth range of Montana. Castaing-Taylor and Lisa Barbash spent three summers filming on the mountainous public pasture lands, and almost five years editing the footage. The documents they have produced attend to a world in which nature, culture, animals, humans, vulnerability and violence are all intimately meshed. With remarkable clarity, and uncompromising attention to the aesthetics of image and sound, they depict the birthing, herding and shearing of several thousand sheep on one of the last substantial family ranches in the American West.

UPCOMING

December 11 – January 4, 2009
Daniel Joseph Martinez, ‘the west bank is missing, i am not dead, am i,’ 2008
(Reception with the artist December 10, 6-8pm)

Daniel Joseph Martinez’ “the west bank is missing; i am not dead am i,” is a sculptural allegory addressed to the seminal role played by housing design in former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s vision for the West Bank settlements.

January 17 – January 31, 2009
Thomas Torres Cordova, Everybody Loves the Sunshine, 2007; I wish you could color correct my films for the rest of my life, 2007
(Reception and performance by the artist, January 21, 6-8pm)

Thomas Torres Cordova reconstructs a two-part essay on air conditioning – a film on the history of this ubiquitous electrically-fueled cooling device, and an installation demonstrating the benefits of those magnificent machines and the over-heated hallucinatory visions that an air conditioned culture leaves in its wake.

February 11-February 28, 2009
Yunhee Min, For instance
(Reception with the artist, February 19, 6-8pm)

Yunhee Min’s architecturally specific theatrical drapes celebrate the gallery’s expansive former-storefront windows, and bracket changing views of the pedestrian and auto traffic outside.
