The Rolling Stones Exhibition to make Australian debut exclusively in Sydney
From November 17th to February 3rd, The Rolling Stones’ first ever major exhibition, Exhibitionism: The Rolling Stones Exhibit is exclusively showing in Sydney at the International Convention Centre (ICC).
Over 500 rare items from the band’s archive are included in the exhibition; rare instruments and lyric books, backstage and touring paraphernalia, album art, photography, stage design and even personal diaries.
There’s a vintage guitar gallery, alongside a collection of 190 original artworks including pieces by Andy Warhol, David Bailey, John Pasche, Walton John, Christian Piper, Robert Frank and many more.
For those who want a more tactile experience, there are also sound mixing decks and a recording studio, a screening cinema narrated by Martin Scorsese, and video experiences throughout, which ultimately culminates in an immersive backstage recreation leading to a 3D concert finale.
“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 the Rolling Stones lead singer 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.”
