The Rolling Stones Announce Exhibitionism

(hennemusic) The Rolling Stones will host their first ever major exhibition at London's prestigious Saatchi Gallery next spring. Set to open April 6, 2016, "Exhibitionism" will see the band display items from their 50-year career and feature more than 500 important and unseen artefacts from the group's personal archives, embracing all aspects of art & design, film, video, fashion, performance, rare sound archives, and the musical heritage that took them from a hard working London blues band in the early 1960s to iconic worldwide status.

"Exhibitionism" presents an interactive tour through the Rolling Stones' history, including original stage designs, dressing room and backstage paraphernalia, rare guitars and instruments, iconic costumes, rare audio tracks and unseen video clips, personal diaries and correspondence, original poster and album cover artwork, and unique cinematic presentations.

Collaborations and work by a vast array of artists, designers, musicians and writers will be included in the exhibition - from Andy Warhol, Shepard Fairey, Alexander McQueen and Ossie Clark to Tom Stoppard and Martin Scorsese.

"We've been thinking about it for quite a long time," explains Mick Jagger, "but wanted it to be just right and on a large scale just like planning our touring concert productions. I think right now it's an interesting time to do it."

"While this is about the Rolling Stones," adds Keith Richards, "it's not necessarily just about the members of the band. It's also about all the paraphernalia and technology associated with a band, like as well as the instruments that have passed through our hands over the years, that will make the exhibition really interesting."
