Robert Fraser's Groovy Arts Club Band

Most art exhibitions are inspired by a certain period of time, sometimes a style, or a specific medium  - but a new show coming to the capital has been inspired by one Londoner in particular.

 

Robert Fraser, known as groovy Bob to his friends, is responsible for introducing works by Andy Warhol and Peter Blake to the capital as he bridged the gap between art and rock and roll in the 1960s.

 

"We are celebrating Fraser's legacy with an exhibition dedicated to Pop Art and the artists he championed. Bringing the rock 'n' roll glamour to the gallery space, these works on display, along with the special edition vinyl album, will transport the viewer back to the Swinging Sixties, full of charisma and excitement" explained Mila Askarova, founder of Gazelli Art House and co-curator of the exhibition.

 

The new exhibition at the Gazelli Art House also has a musical soundtrack, with each track inspired by each artist within the show, along with it’s title track dedicated to Fraser himself. The eponym album has been written by David Stephenson who co-curated the show.

 

The exhibition, Robert Fraser's Groovy Arts Club Band opens January 11th and runs until 23rd February 2019.
