Dennis Hopper, the American film actor and director, was closely associated with the hopes and failures of the counterculture of the 1960s. Hopper was a keen artist and he took up photography intensively from 1961 – 1967, documenting America’s cultural and social life. This exhibition will bring together over 400 of his photographs, discovered after Hopper’s death in 2010. Dennis Hopper: The Lost Album will feature iconic portraits of artists and actors, including Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol and Paul Newman, alongside shots of historic social and political events such as Martin Luther King’s march from Selma to Montgomery in 1965.
