The Rolling Stones’ first ever major exhibition, Exhibitionism, delivered by DHL, made its Chicago debut on April 15 at Navy Pier. Exhibitionism runs a four-month engagement through July 30, 2017, proudly brought to the US by Jackson. The extraordinary exhibit includes an expanse of more than 500 rare items covering the bands influence on fashion, film, recording, art, and design, and is the largest touring exhibition of its kind ever to be staged at nearly 18,000 square feet.
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.
The exhibit is 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.
To celebrate and complement the arrival of Exhibitionism, Navy Pier will activate the 50-acre non-profit cultural destination with free programming throughout the duration of the exhibit to provide guests an authentic, Pier-wide experience. Among the many exciting additions is All-Access with Paul Natkin, a free photo gallery featuring approximately 30 iconic images of The Rolling Stones’ most intimate moments and experiences, captured by Chicago native and band photographer, Paul Natkin.
Free and open to the public throughout the span of Exhibitionism, the gallery is a complementary sneak peek of the main exhibit, highlighting iconic moments of The Rolling Stones on tour. All-Access with Paul Natkin will be stationed in the lower level lobby of Festival Hall A, between Doors 9 and 10.
Navy Pier is also set to host special fireworks synchronized to The Rolling Stones song tracks on select nights, in addition to featuring The Rolling Stones cover bands at the Miller Lite Beer Garden on May 27, July 1 and July 29.
