Rock And Roll Exhibitionism

Maximum Rolling Stones at Exhibitionism

As the self-described “World’s Greatest Rock and Roll Band,” it’s not surprising that The Rolling Stones would create Exhibitionism, delivered by DHL, a grandiose and over-the-top, pop-up museum experience that’s in line with the kind of branding the group has become known for throughout its career. Located in the Meatpacking District section of the West Village at Industria, this exhibition runs through March 12. Featuring the full participation of band members Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood and curated by New York native Ileen Gallagher, this highly immersive and interactive experience uses more than 500 rare items to tell the story of the Stones dating back to the group’s early 1960s origins.

This multimedia experience features an art installation recreation of the 1963 flat located in London’s Chelsea area shared by Jagger, Richards and founding member Brian Jones; a costume section featuring quotes by designers Tommy Hilfiger, Anna Sui and John Varvatos and a section dedicated to the band’s cinematic history with commentary by director Martin Scorsese, who directed the 2008 concert film Shine a Light.

There’s plenty of ephemera to get the pulses racing for the rabid Stones fan. Along with gear that includes Richards’ rosewood Fender Telecaster and the toy drum kit Watts used in the recording of “Street Fighting Man,” you’ll find Jagger’s lyric book with the handwritten words for “Miss You,” “Hey Negrita” and “Worried About You,” fanzine questionnaires filled out by the band and footage of them playing with blues legend Muddy Waters at Chicago’s Checkerboard Lounge. The exhibit takes about 90 minutes to go through and culminates in a 3-D “concert performance” of “Satisfaction.”
