The Rolling Stones wanted Exhibitionism, their first-ever major exhibition, to be a “colossal” reflection of 54 years in the music business...
The Rolling Stones's Exhibitionism exhibition is 'as colossal as their body of work'
Described as “the most comprehensive insight” into the group, and opening at Chelsea’s Saatchi Gallery on Tuesday, Exhibitionism is an interactive Rolling Stones experience.
The musical heritage which took the group from a blues band in the early 1960s to the influential pop culture giants they remain forms the heart of the exhibition.
The band’s personal artefacts, including costumes and original instruments, are on display and there is even a reproduction of the first flat they shared in Chelsea.
Exhibitionism features art and design, film, video, fashion, performance and rare sound archives from the group who were formed in London more than five decades ago.
The brainchild of Australian promoters Tony and Thea Cochrane, the ambitious show “had to be as colossal as their body of work”, Mr Cochrane told News Corp Australia.
