The Rolling Stones are set to be the subject of the biggest ever touring rock exhibition, coming to the Saatchi Gallery in 2016.
EXHIBITIONISM marks the iconic band’s first major international exhibition and will run between 6 April 2016 – September 2016 at the London gallery.
Tickets go on sale 10:00 on 10 July 2015, but we’ve got a pre-registration form allowing access to the 24 hour advance booking after 9:00 on 9 July.
The Rolling Stones exhibition will take over the entire two floors of the Saatchi Gallery with nine thematic galleries, combining over 500 original Stones’ artefacts, with striking cinematic and interactive technologies offering the most comprehensive insight into the band’s fascinating fifty year history.
From never before seen dressing room and backstage paraphernalia to rare instruments; original stage designs, iconic costumes, rare audio tracks and video footage; personal diaries; poster and album cover artwork; and unique wraparound cinematic experiences that celebrate every aspect of their Careers. Centre stage is the musical heritage that took them from a London blues band in the early 1960s to inspirational cultural icons.
This is not to be missed!
“We’ve been thinking about this for quite a long time but we wanted it to be just right and on a large scale,” said Mick Jagger. “The process has been like planning our touring concert productions and I think that right now it’s an interesting time to do it.”
Keith Richards added: “While this is about The Rolling Stones, it’s not necessarily only just about the members of the band.
“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.”
