LOS ANGELES, CA.- The Museum of
Contemporary Art,
Los Angeles (MOCA), presents Dennis Hopper Double Standard, the first
comprehensive survey exhibition of Dennis Hopper’s artistic career to be
mounted
by a North American museum, July 11 through September 26, 2010, at The
Geffen
Contemporary at MOCA. Julian Schnabel calls Hopper, “a painter without a
brush,”
articulating a visual statement that is “beyond language.” Schnabel
speaks about
how Hopper “made film into art,” and describes how he “takes the viewer
on a
high risk journey with him, working without a safety net.”
