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 gallery director, Linda Norden.

Thomas Torres Cordova’s “Everybody Loves the Sunshine,” an exhibition and film essay on air conditioning originally conceived as part of his Bard College MFA thesis exhibition, reconstructs a personal narrative around this ubiquitous, electrically fueled cooling device. The central installation, “I wish you could color correct my films for the rest of my life,” is a very literal demonstration of the benefits of those magnificent machines and the over-heated hallucinatory visions that an air conditioned culture leaves in its wake.
