THE ECLECTIC INTERIOR:    The Artful Life of Dennis Hopper

The Eclectic Interior: The Artful Life of Dennis Hopper is an exhibition of extraordinary artwork from the estate of Dennis Hopper and bespoke Beacon Hill textiles. Much as a man can be known by the company he keeps, the living space of an artist can shed insight on his character. The late Dennis Hopper was best known as an actor and filmmaker, but his creative expression took many forms including sculpture, photography and painting. The eclectic interiors of his home were perhaps the most personally expressive art form in his repertoire, as fearless and unconventional as the man himself.

A lifelong art enthusiast, Hopper amassed a collection that virtually tells the story of 20th century art through works by artists ranging from Marcel Duchamp to Gerhart Richter. Yet Hopper’s collection is deeply personal; whether lively, melancholy, curious or jarring, all the pieces are expressive and alive. They reveal Dennis Hopper’s insatiable appetite for new experiences.
