This, the first ever international and hugely popular exhibition by The Rolling Stones showcases the band's amazing fifty years history.

It incorporates 9 themed galleries with over 500 items on display, ranging from original stage costumes, rare instruments and lyric books, backstage and touring paraphernalia, album art, photography, stage designs, personal diaries, and never before released audio and behind-the-scenes footage.

Celebrating the Stones’ artistic collaborations in music, art and design, fashion and film, Exhibitionism also features original works by numerous and diverse artists, such as Andy Warhol, Alexander McQueen, Prada, Dior, Ossie Clark, L’Wren Scott, David Bailey, Michael Cooper, Jeff Koons, Walton Ford, Shepard Fairey and Martin Scorsese.

 
And if this wasn't enough to satisfy the viewing public, the exhibition includes a recreation of the legendary band's recording studio, complete with original instruments and interactive desks; a realistic reconstruction of 'Edith Grove', their first shared flat in London's Chelsea district; and culminates in a unique, immersive backstage and 3D concert experience.

If after viewing this mega exhibition you are still hungry for things Rolling Stones, you may want to check the artwork of one of the band members. Ronnie Wood, before he became a musician, trained in art at Ealing College of Art in London.

He has continued his artwork throughout his musical career, and his drawings and paintings are available in several London galleries, and have been exhibited internationally.

He is fond of portraits, mainly of famous musicians, as well as of friends and family.
