Jeffrey Deitch and Julian Schnabel at the MOCA press preview of the Dennis Hopper show, which is in the background.

A few months before New York dealer Jeffrey Deitch officially took over as director of the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Los Angeles on June 1, he announced that the first show on his watch would be a retrospective of the artwork of actor/director Dennis Hopper.

Sadly, Hopper died of prostate cancer on May 29.
