The Rolling Stones will display their personal archives next year when they introduce “EXHIBITIONISM” to the public. The exhibit will be at London’s Saactchi Gallery and will consist of nine different themes spread out over two floors and will feature 500 Rolling Stones artifacts from the band’s glory days.
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 frontman Mick Jagger in a statement. “The process has been like planning our touring concert productions and I think that right now it’s an interesting time to do it.”
It took three years to assemble and according to the organizers of “EXHIBITIONISM” it will feature rare guitars and instruments The Stones used on tour and in the recording studio, backstage paraphernalia, rare audio tracks and unseen video clips and a whole bunch more Stones stuff (sic).
“While this is about The Rolling Stones, it’s not necessarily only just about the members of the band,” added Keith Richards. “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.”
After it’s stint in London, the ‘Exhibitionism’ gallery will be moved to eleven other cities across the world over a four year period.
