Who was Robert Fraser?
Robert Fraser is known as the man handcuffed to Mick Jagger in that iconic newspaper image, when the Rolling Stones front man was arrested in 1967. But Fraser was best known as a celebrated gallery owner, showing renowned American and European contemporary artists through the 1960s and 80s.
Pace Gallery exhibition
This exhibition, curated by Fraser’s friend, artist Brian Clarke, steers clear of academia and captures the flamboyant character of the art dealer, and the dynamism of his gallery programme. It’s more an intimate celebration than a formal revision that celebrates the career of Fraser as an art pioneer and revels in the London arts scene of the 1960s. Look out for works by contemporary artists who passed through the halls of Robert Fraser’s gallery, including Francis Bacon, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Richard Hamilton, Jean Dubuffet, Claes Oldenburg and Andy Warhol.
