Just opened and running until June 22nd at Gagosian's Madison Avenue gallery, this immense show features over 400 black and white photographs taken by Dennis Hopper between 1961 and 1967. These images have not been exhibited in the US since 1970, and the "cultural events, iconic individuals, and intimate moments that caught Hopper’s attention, constitute a panoramic view of the sixties that combines political idealism and humanistic optimism with California cool." The show is a must-see for those with an interest in "the establishment-busting spirit of the 1960s," but The Lost Album is also an accessible body of work, worthy of widespread attention.
