Worldwide Tour

The Rolling Stones’ first ever major traveling exhibition premiered at London’s Saatchi Gallery. EXHIBITIONISM was the most comprehensive and immersive presentation of the band’s career. Comprised of over five hundred important and unseen artifacts from the band’s personal archives, it portrayed not only their musical career but also their cultural influence on art and design, film, video, photography, fashion, and performance throughout the decades. The worldwide tour commenced in September 2016 and ended in Tokyo June 2019.

EXHIBITIONISM will continue a tour of museums in Europe and other locations under the title of THE ROLLING STONES: UNZIPPED. ISG Productions will continue to serve as the exhibition’s curator and project director.
