Peter Fraser

Tate St Ives: Exhibition

26 January 6 May 2013

The exhibition at Tate St Ives will include works drawn from across 30 years of Fraser’s career. The first room will be dedicated to photographs from his most recent series A City in the Mind 2012. The following rooms will bring together selected works from Fraser’s earlier series, including the seminal Two Blue Buckets 1988, Deep Blue 1997, Material 2002, Nazrali 2006 and Lost for Words 2010.

The Peter Fraser exhibition will be presented alongside an exhibition of the acclaimed British modernist William Scott, who is perhaps best known for his still life paintings, often of the same few elements – pots, pans, cutlery, dishes. In a similar manner Peter Fraser presents ‘found’ still lifes. Often humble subjects which, through his lens, reveal something more universal and profound.

A monograph covering the whole of Fraser’s career to date with an essay by David Chandler will be published by Tate to accompany the exhibition.
