The Rolling Stones’ first ever major exhibition, Exhibitionism, delivered by DHL, is now open at Navy Pier.
The much-anticipated exhibit will run a four-month engagement through July 30, 2017. The Chicago engagement follows the exhibit’s global premiere in London and its star studded U.S. premiere in New York City, both of which garnered rave reviews and drew huge crowds of music, art, and fashion lovers.
Exhibitionism is the largest touring experience of its kind ever to be staged, and the first time in history the band has unlocked their vast private archive exploring the very beginning of their history to The Stones’ superstardom of today.
Exhibitionism tells the story of the most influential rock ‘n’ roll band in history, allowing visitors to experience first-hand their incredible journey from early days living together in a tiny flat to headlining the biggest stages in the world.
Exhibitionism continues the Stones’ proud tradition of groundbreaking innovation combined with the highest production values. Originated and produced by Australian-based iEC Exhibitions! with the full participation of Mick, Keith, Charlie, and Ronnie, and curated by New York native Ileen Gallagher, this highly-immersive and interactive exhibition explores the Stones’ extraordinary career featuring over 500 rare and original items from their archive. From their most cherished instruments, onstage and offstage clothes, valuable works of art and handwritten lyric books to 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.
Over the past 50 years, The Rolling Stones became, and have remained, one of the most culturally important acts in history. From the daring white dress worn by Mick Jagger in 1969, to the seminal Sticky Fingers (1971) album cover to their iconic tongue and lips logo, up to their chart-topping latest album Blue and Lonesome released in December 2016, The Rolling Stones have continued to break the boundaries of cultural norms throughout their incredible career.
The original works of key collaborators who helped to make the band not just musical but cultural icons are also on display, including Andy Warhol, John Pasche, who designed the band’s iconic tongue logo, fashion designers Ossie Clark and Alexander McQueen, artist Shepard Fairey, producer Don Was, and film director Martin Scorsese.
