Magazine of art press and reviews from London
London – The Saatchi Gallery presented Exhibitionism an amazing show about The Rolling Stones. With over 500 objects coming from the band’s personal archives, “Exhibitionism” at the Saatchi Gallery provided a broad overview on The Rolling Stones, spanning from their beginning in the 1960’s in London to the present days.
Exhibitionism was displayed across two entire floors at the prominent Saatchi Gallery in London, and in nine themed rooms, each with its own distinctly designed environment, that demonstrated how the band has changed our understanding of rock and roll.
Spanning over 1,750 square metres, it included art & design, film, video, fashion, performance, and rare sound archives, and with artworks by Andy Warhol, David Bailey, Jeff Koons, Walton Ford, and Shepard Fairey. Collaborations and work by the enormous range of artists, designers, musicians and writers were also presented in the exhibition – from Alexander McQueen and Ossie Clark to Tom Stoppard and Martin Scorsese.
Mick Jagger commented: “We’ve been thinking about this for quite a long time but we wanted it to be just right and on a large scale. The process has been like planning our touring concert productions and I think that right now it’s an interesting time to do it.”
