HOPPERíS BIG SHOW
by Tiff Chalmers
It didnít take the dozens of art-world paparazzi at the July 9 press preview at the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA to ensure that its new exhibition, "Dennis Hopper
Double Standard," would hit the ground with more pre-awareness than a teen vampire sequel. The barely posthumous exhibition survey -- curated by artist-director Julian Schnabel
under the aegis of newly minted MOCA director Jeffrey Deitch, with assistance from credited collaborator and BFF-to-the-stars Tony Shafrazi (who was Hopperís dealer) -- is packaged tightly enough even for vintage Michael Ovitz.
