Rolling Stones Launch Exhibitionism

(hennemusic) The Rolling Stones were on hand Tuesday to open "Exhibitionism", their first ever major exhibition at London's prestigious Saatchi Gallery, and video from the launch has been posted online.

The event sees the band display items from their 50-year career and features 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.

"My life flashed before my eyes in seconds," Mick Jagger tells RT UK. "This is like your life flashing before your eyes in well, half an hour, you could do it if you walked quickly. It looks really good and I'm very pleased with it. I think people will enjoy it."

"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. Watch the video here.
