Gazelli Art House presents Robert Fraser’s Groovy Arts Club Band celebrating the esteemed London gallerist Robert Fraser (1937-1986). Curated by Mila Askarova and David G.A. Stephenson; from 11th January to 23rd February 2019.

About

This exciting group exhibition brings together thirteen artists who Fraser championed during his time along with other members of the pop art movement. The exhibition title takes inspiration from Harriet Vyner’s oral history of Robert Fraser entitled Groovy Bob, one of the key influencers and trendsetters in the 1960s when pop culture, music and art collided. To accompany the exhibition, Gazelli Art House in collaboration with The Arts Club will launch an eponym double-vinyl album containing fourteen songs in tribute to Fraser, a.k.a. Groovy Bob. The exhibition together with the songs emphases the relationship between music and art, and celebrate Fraser’s artists’ continued relevance and influence.

The artists are: Clive Barker, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Peter Blake, Derek Boshier, Brian Clarke, Jim Dine, Jean Dubuffet, Richard Hamilton, Keith Haring, Jann Haworth, Bridget Riley, Ed Ruscha and Colin Self.

Our opening, on 10th January, will be marked by the release of 100 white helium-filled balloons, a tribute to the anniversary of You Are Here opening, which took place at the Robert Fraser Gallery forty years ago. On the occasion of their first joint art exhibition, Fraser had John Lennon and Yoko Ono release 365 white balloons over London.
