Hope Chests and Horses

Like a lot of Pacific Standard Time shows, Cirrus Gallery's "Once Emerging, Now Emerging" includes an overwhelming amount of art. But it has an addictive energy. It pools the work of artists starting out in the '60s and '70s and artists starting now. The installations, videos, drawings and sculptures — including a headless horse that whispers "horse" out of a sound box in its throat, and a resin hope chest that doubles as a humidifier — feel equally slapdash and renegade, which makes a good argument against nostalgia for L.A. of past eras. 542 S. Alameda St., dwntwn.; through Jan. 7. (213) 680-3473, cirrusgallery.com.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: Dec. 3. Continues through Jan. 7, 2011
