The band's career-spanning exhibit opened in London in April
The Rolling Stones‘ ‘Exhibitionism’ is to open in New York later this year.
The career-spanning exhibit opened at London’s Saatchi Gallery in April. It will head across the Atlantic in November.
The exhibit features stage outfits, album artwork, photography, stage designs, personal diaries, behind-the-scenes footage and a recreation of the band’s first apartment. It will find a home in New York’s Industria Superstudio, located in the city’s West Village.
Rolling Stone reports that, in a statement, Mick Jagger said: “We’ve been thinking about this for quite a long time but we wanted it to be just right and on a large scale. It’s not going to be like walking into a museum.”
He continued: “It’s going to be an event, an experience. It’s about a sense of the Rolling Stones – it’s something we want people to go away talking about it.”
Keith Richards added: “While this is about the Rolling Stones, it’s not necessarily only just about us. 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 unforgettable.”
‘Exhibitionism’ also includes a complete history of the John Pasche designed iconic lips logo, memorabilia from the band’s personal archives and more.
Tickets for the exhibit’s New York residency will go on sale in September.
