The performance, pageantry, popularity of The Rolling Stones is coming to New York City in one must-see exhibition.
Exhibitionism, which has already been greeted with acclaim in London, features nine galleries with varying themes recounting the dynamic history and influence of The Rolling Stones: “Ladies and Gentlemen” (galleries 1 and 2); “Edith Grove” (3); “Recording” (4); “Film & Video” (5); “Art & Design” (6); “Style – Costumes” (7); “Rare & Unseen” (8); and “Performance 3D” (9). Each gallery will have its “its own distinctly designed environment” covering 1,750 square meters.
The galleries – which include the band’s collaborations with various artists like Andy Warhol, Alexander McQueen, Prada, Dior, Ossie Clark, L’Wren Scott, David Bailey, Michael Cooper, Jeff Koons, Walton Ford, Shepard Fairey, and Martin Scorsese, to name a few – makes its debut at the Industria Superstudio in the West Village on November 12th after wrapping up its seasonal run in London in September.
“While this is about the Rolling Stones, 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,” says Keith Richards, with drummer Charlie Watts adding, “It’s hard to believe that it’s more than fifty years since we began, and it is wonderful to look back to the start and bring everything up to date at this exhibition.”
Tickets for Exhibitionism will go on sale to the general public on September 14 at 10am EST. Tickets are for a timed entry with limited availability in each slot so advance bookings are recommended.
