The Rolling Stones have announced plans to bring their first major exhibition, ‘Exhibitionism: The Rolling Stones Exhibit’, to Australia later this year.
The exhibit will be on display exclusively at Sydney’s International Convention Centre (ICC) from Saturday, 17th November 2018 to Sunday, 3rd February 2019.
‘Exhibitionism’ contains over 500 pieces of Stones memorabilia, including items from the band’s private archive like vintage guitars and instruments, lyric books, photography and personal diaries and letters.
There’s also 50 years of Stone fashion on display, 190 original artworks by the likes of Andy Warhol, Shepard Fairey and David Bailey, as well as interactive sound mixing decks and a screening cinema narrated by Martin Scorsese.
The exhibit has already made its way through London, New York and Nashville, and is expected to contribute $35 million to the NSW economy.
“We’ve been thinking about this for quite a long time but we wanted it to be just right and on a large scale,” says Stones frontman Mick Jagger.
“It’s not going to be like walking into a museum. 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.”
