Cirrus Gallery is pleased to present Livin' L.A., the second installment of its Once Emerging Now Emerging series, as part of the Getty's PST initiative. As a mixed installment of artists working up to and after PST's 1980 cut off date, the exhibition proposes that PST, as a moment, is still happening. The presented work engages evolved histories of the L.A. art world's landscape; its multi-context and subjectivity through a "rear view of sorts" to the past while still moving forward. The exhibition builds itself generally from the platform of the literal landscape and iconography of Hollywood. Works range from landscape painting to pop reverent video, performance based sculpture, literature, photography and music. Mixed throughout the exhibition are video and audio elements of mixed generational art, pop and social culture selected by artists and the curators, along with a live performance opening night by John Hogan's Ponce de Leon.

Works in exhibition by Vija Celmins, Judy Chicago, Greg Curtis, Doug Edge, Margarete V. Haines, John P. Hogan, Rachel Kessler, Calvin Lee, Lesley Moon, Terry O'Shea, Lari Pittman, Kenneth Price, Vincent Ramos, Ed Ruscha, Orlando Tirado and Bobbi Woods
