Glass distinction

  • Comment

My old friend Brian Clarke's latest exhibition, an installation of stained glass, takes place at the Tony Shafrazi Gallery, New York, in two weekends' time. For background, I can thoroughly recommend Groovy Bob, the biography of the '60s art dealer and gallery owner Robert Fraser, told in jump-cut slices of interviews with apparently anyone who was anyone in that frenetic decade, including Cedric Price, who designed Fraser's first London gallery. A racy tale indeed, and one that helps explain Keith Richards' fury over Mick Jagger's acceptance of a knighthood.

Fraser did time with Jagger following a minor drugs bust (although Fraser was using heroin), and was part of the famous pop-art poster image which captured the spirit of the age. Fraser is long dead, but it is good to see survivors still making the grade.
