This definitely rocks!
Next month, the Rolling Stones will take their first ever exhibition, aptly entitled Exhibitionism, exclusively to Sydney.
Exhibitionism will take visitors on a journey through time from the band’s early days playing in tiny pubs in London, up to their explosion as one of the best selling acts in music history.

Exhibitionism features over 190 original artworks by Andy Warhol, David Bailey, John Pasche, Walton Ford, Shepard Fairey, Michael Cooper, Christian Piper, Robert Frank and many more. Don't miss Exhibitionism in Nashville's Music City, the last stop on the exhibit's US tour!
It will showcase a collection of over 500 items, including vintage guitars, rare instruments, lyric books, photos, stage designs, and personal diaries.
In addition, visitors will be able to see more than 190 original artworks with pieces from Andy Warhol, British art designer John Pasche (known for creating the band’s iconic logo), and Swiss-American photographer and documentary filmmaker Robert Frank, among others.
Exhibitionism will be an interactive experience that will include sound mixing desks, interactive displays, and the screening of documentary clips narrated by none other than Martin Scorsese.
Also installed is a recreation of the Edith Grove flat that Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and Brian Jones shared in 1962, as well as a reconstruction of their studio, giving visitors a peek into the group’s recording process. Most interestingly, the exhibit will culminate in a mind-bending 3D concert finale.
The event, which will take attendees some 90 minutes to finish seeing, is being organised by Destination NSW in cooperation with iEC Exhibitions! and TEG Live.
“We’re pleased the greatest rock band of all time has selected Sydney as the only Australian stop on the global tour of their exhibition. It’s a great endorsement for Sydney as Australia’s number one event capital and we look forward to hosting Exhibitionism at the new International Convention Centre (ICC) Sydney,” said former NSW Premier Mike Baird.
“We have a proven track record in hosting world-class events and expect this exhibition will attract thousands of people to Sydney and deliver an estimated $35 million to the local economy,” commented Stuart Ayres, Minister for Major Events and Tourism
