Dennis Hopper’s Sixties Hollywood in Paris

By Alexis Thrower

October 21, 2015

“Icons of The Sixites” opens today at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac’s Paris Pantin location. The show presents work by the late actor and artist Dennis Hopper, featuring a selection of 35 hand-signed vintage photographs, personal objects, sculptures, and a film by the man known as the “Icon of New Hollywood.”

After being associated with Andy Warhol in New York in the early 60s and later with notable actors in Los Angeles, his work began to reflect that revolutionary time.

Photos of actors Paul Newman and Jane Fonda, musicians Ike and Tina Turner, and artists Jasper Johns and Roy Lichtenstein, prove Hopper’s inclusion in both the art and Hollywood worlds. In addition to photographs, a collection of personal memorabilia, including passports, flight tickets, faxes, letters, and postcards, further explore the various aspects of Hopper’s life.

Going along with the sixties time period that heightened Hopper’s career, the exhibition also displays the sculpture Bomb Drop (1967) a large-scale replica of a WWII bomb drop switch, erected during the Vietnam War. This was the last piece Hopper completed before going on a lengthy artistic hiatus. Bomb Drop works in contrast with the installation Life After on Canvas (1997), a triptych of two digitized video stills on canvas of a performance in 1983, after he went back to his studio practice.
