From 1970 to the present, Cirrus Gallery and Cirrus Editions Ltd. has prided itself in publishing and exhibiting some of the greatest artists of the 21st century, giving many now established artists their start. At our first location on 708 N Manhattan Place, we published and exhibited works by Ed Ruscha, Ed Moses, Vija Celmins, Raul Guerrero, Ken Price, and Bruce Nauman, to name a few. The gallery showed works of diverse media, like large installations by Barbara T. Smith and performances by Guy De Cointet. In 1973, Cirrus was the first Los Angeles Gallery to attend Art Basel Switzerland, showcasing California art globally.
In 1980, Cirrus was one of the first galleries to move downtown. Here the gallery grew further. In 1986, The Real McCoys: A Southern California Collection exhibited over 200 artists including Michael Asher, Larry Bell, Chris Burden, James Turrell, Frank Gehry, and Betye Saar. It stands as an ambitious attempt to to historicize art in Los Angeles. At this location we published and exhibited works by Mark Bradford, Mary Weatherford, and John Baldesarri. We now reside at our current location at 2011 S Santa Fe Ave in the Arts District Downtown where we have been since 2015. Here we have worked with artists such as Judy Chicago, Lita Albuquerque, Derek Boshier, and Jonas Wood.
