The Rolling Stones is set to hold its first ever major international exhibition in collaboration with the Saatchi gallery, EXHIBITIONISM.
It will run from April 6 until September.
EXHIBITIONISM will be an immersive and intimate experience into “The Greatest Rock N Roll Band”.
It will feature over five hundred artefacts from the bands archives which are previously unseen.
Personal diaries, paraphernalia, original stage designs, cinematic experiences, album cover art work and unseen footage, will all contribute to this cultural hub.
The exhibition has taking vast planning – over three years – and will be spread across two floors and use nine gallery spaces to document the influences of the band.
Ronnie Wood said, “The scene was great down the King’s Road in the 1960’s. That was where you went to hang out to watch the fashions go by. So it is appropriate that our EXHIBITIONISM will be housed at the wonderful Saatchi Gallery.”
The Stones have been at the forefront of rock n’ roll for over five decades now. This exhibition uncovers a unique perspective of quality and unprecedented innovation which has been the signature of the band since they formed in the early 60’s.
“We’ve been thinking about this for quite a long time but we wanted it to be just right and on a large scale. The process has been like planning our touring concert productions and I think that right now it’s an interesting time to do it.” – Mick Jagger
Stonesism not only encompasses the band but everything they have achieved. EXHIBITIONISM gives the most concise insight to the bands legacy in this largest ever touring experience staged by any band or artist.
Major collaborations from artists, musicians, designers will be present including Alexander Mcqueen, Andy Warhol, Martin Scorsee and Ossie Clark whom all worked with The Stones.
Over fifty years the band has embraced film, art & design, fashion and performance. The Stones started from humble beginnings as a blues band in London, now they are seen not only as music, but cultural icons of the 20th Century.
