Alexandra Peers went down to Chelsea for the opening of the new season. She reports on it for New York Magazine. One of the stops was Dennis Hopper’s opening (New York has more on that here.) There she ran into Salman Rushdie who praised Hopper’s work:

Peers asked Rushdie if he was going to buy one of the pictures to which the novellist demurred:
“I collect contemporary Indian art,” he said.
