The Rolling Stones’ first major exhibition, “Exhibitionism,” delivered by DHL, made its North American debut in New York City on Nov. 12. Following its star-studded opening in London, which garnered rave reviews and drew huge crowds, “Exhibitionism” has come across the pond to the iconic Industria in the West Village.
“Exhibitionism” is the largest touring experience of its kind ever to be staged and marks the first time the band has unlocked its vast private archive.
“Exhibitionism” tells the story of the most influential rock ‘n’ roll band in the world, allowing visitors to experience band members’ incredible journey from their early days living together in a tiny flat to headlining the biggest stages in the world.
Over the past 50 years, the Rolling Stones became, and have remained, one of the most culturally important acts in history. From the daring white dress worn by Mick Jagger in 1969 to the seminal “Sticky Fingers” (1971) album cover and iconic tongue and lips logo, the Rolling Stones have continued to break the boundaries of cultural norms over their incredible careers.
The original works of key collaborators who helped to make the band not just musical but cultural icons are also on show, including Andy Warhol, John Pasché, who designed the band’s tongue logo, fashion designers Ossie Clark and Alexander McQueen, artist Shepard Fairey, producer Don Was and film director Martin Scorsese.
“Exhibitionism” will run in New York through March 12. To buy tickets, visit the “Exhibitionism” website. >>>
