Rolling Stone’s Exhibitionism – Saatchi Gallery London

London’s Saatchi Gallery will host the first major Rolling Stones exhibition next year. Exhibitionism, opening April 6, 2016, and continuing through September, will feature more than 500 artifacts from the group dubbed “The World’s Greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll Band” spread across two floors of the gallery. Three years in the planning, the exhibit will approach the Stones’ 50-year history from several angles, including art and design, film, video, fashion, performance, and rare sound archives. “We’ve been thinking about this for quite a long time but we wanted it to be just right and on a large scale,” Mick Jagger said via a news release. “The process has been like planning our touring concert productions and I think that right now it’s an interesting time to do it.” The interactive tour will include original stage designs, dressing room and backstage paraphernalia; rare guitars and instruments, costumes, audio tracks and unseen video clips; personal diaries and correspondence; original poster and album cover artwork; and cinematic presentations. Artists who have collaborated with the Stones on projects through the years, including Andy Warhol, Shepard Fairey, Alexander McQueen, and Ossie Clark to Tom Stoppard and Martin Scorsese, also will be included in the exhibition. “While this is about the Rolling Stones, it’s not necessarily only just about the members of the band,” Keith Richards said. “It’s also about all the paraphernalia and technology associated with a group like us, and it’s this, as well as the instruments that have passed through our hands over the years, that should make the exhibition really interesting.” After Exhibitionism finishes its run at Saatchi Gallery, the exhibit likely will go on tour to 11 additional cities over a four-year period.
