Legendary rock group The Rolling Stones last year debuted their first ever art exhibit called Exhibitionism. The collection of over 500 items of Stones memorabilia will soon be coming to Chicago.
Beginning on April 15 and running through July 30 Exhibitionism will be housed at Navy Pier. The Windy City follows New York City and London in hosting Exhibitionism. The immersive and interactive Exhibitionism was curated by Ileen Gallagher and is currently being staged at Industria in New York City through March 12.
“This world-class exhibit brings full-circle a journey that began more than 50 years ago when a burgeoning British band came to Chicago to record in the same studio as their idols Muddy Waters, Bo Diddley and Howlin’ Wolf,” Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel said. “Since then we have seen The Rolling Stones return for countless legendary concerts, and in the process become living legends, spreading Chicago’s cultural vibrancy throughout the world.”
The exhibit features “cherished instruments, onstage and offstage clothes, valuable works of art and handwritten lyric books” as well as “personal diaries, recordings, unseen film and photos, a screening cinema and interactive recording studio that all culminate in an exciting and powerful backstage-to-onstage 3D concert experience.” There’s also the work of collaborators such as Andy Warhol, John Pasche, Alexander McQueen, Shepard Fairey, Don Was, Martin Scorsese and others.
Tickets to Exhibitionism in Chicago go on sale on February 24 at 10 a.m. Head here for more information about the Exhibitionism art exhibit.
