I was there last Friday and its really great. I will probably go back in February with some friends since I am only a 2 hour ride away. You can take pictures in most of the Exhibit, the last two you are not allowed (the back stage area and 3D mini concert).

If at all possible you can get there and are on the fence, GO! its worth it....

I tend to believe that the US would rather see The Rolling Stones LIVE onstage rather than boxed up in a museum.

Re-Creating Rolling Stones History

For the show “Exhibitionism,” a curator brought together the band’s artifacts and reconstructed the rooms where the Stones worked and lived.

By John Seabrook

It is certainly possible to view “Exhibitionism,” the travelling show of Rolling Stones artifacts, costumes, and memorabilia which recently opened in the West Village, as yet another attempt by the group—whose most famous song is a stinging critique of consumerism—to wring every last dollar out of that big, lascivious tongue. (Tickets are thirty-five fifty; V.I.P. treatment is seventy-six fifty.) But for the true Stones fan “Exhibitionism” also gives satisfaction, and a good deal of it comes from the immersive environments created by the show’s curator, Ileen Gallagher.

A few days before the show opened, Gallagher, wearing a leather motorcycle jacket, was wandering through the event space looking for somewhere to sit.

“I know just the place!” she declared. Seventeen thousand square feet have been given over to “Exhibitionism,” which began at the Saatchi Gallery, in London, and will remain in New York until March. The idea was to create real-seeming historical rooms in which artifacts from the Rolling Stones’ archives could be “situated,” and to employ state-of-the-art sound, video, and set design to heighten the experience. The result is something between Madame Tussauds and Tracey Emin’s bed.

Here is Olympic Studios, where “Sympathy for the Devil” was created—Gallagher based the room on the film that Jean-Luc Godard made of the sessions. Here is the backstage area, where guitars are racked in the order in which they will be needed that night, and a stage manager’s tense voice is saying, over the intercom, “House lights down in five, four, three . . .” Geeky? Perhaps. Sneakily thrilling? Fasho.

Gallagher turned a corner and arrived at her re-creation of 102 Edith Grove, the one-bedroom flat in Chelsea where Keith, Mick, and Brian all lived together, with sleepovers from Charlie, for thirteen months beginning in the late summer of 1962.

Gallagher, who was born and grew up in Stuyvesant Town, has been a Stones fan since the early seventies. Finding the spot she was looking for, she perched on a couch in the Stones’ old sitting room. A 1958 Muddy Waters album sat on the table in front of her; there were beer bottles, and an ashtray brimming with butts.

She explained that she had honed her skills in the museumification of rock history as the director of exhibitions at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, in Cleveland, during the nineties. “The Rock Hall of Fame was the first to treat rock in a visual-culture way,” she said. “And MTV made that possible, because you saw the clothes, and it became about stuff.”

The problem with re-creating 102 Edith Grove was that there were no good photos of the interior. Gallagher relied mainly on her separate interviews with Mick, Charlie, and Keith, in which she recorded their memories of the place. (Visitors can hear these as they walk around the flat.) Mick recalled that “it smelled really bad and it was, like, people would be sick everywhere and they’d be, like, leaving dirty plates and dirty food.” Charlie noted, of Brian and Keith, “They were the laziest buggers in the world. They would never pick anything up, so the sink was always full . . . penicillin was growing.” That was because, as Keith explained to Gallagher, “we were too busy, you know, avidly learning how to be blues players and that was all we had time for.” Also living in the flat was James Phelge, a beatnik, who was the foulest of the lot. “We’d get back from a gig and Phelge would be standing at the top of the stairs saying, ‘Welcome home,’ pissing on you,” Keith told Gallagher. From this fecund bog sprang one of the greatest songwriting partnerships of all time.

So Gallagher made a mess. “But a period mess,” she noted, curatorially. “The bottles and crisps are all period.” The heaps of cigarette butts are not; they were smoked by the workmen who built the exhibition in London, and were told to save them. The only item in the flat that is semi-authentic is a wooden guitar, a Valencia—a replica of one that Keith lost. (Several exhibitions could be mounted from things that Keith has lost.)

“When the band saw Edith Grove, they were thrilled,” Gallagher said proudly. Richards, who has lived for some years on an estate in Weston, Connecticut, previewed the space in London. “I’m home!” he cried upon entering the pigsty. One note from Jagger, who now lives in a mansion not far from Edith Grove: “Get rid of some of those cigarette butts. It wasn’t that bad.”

Gallagher kept her eye on the workmen, who were putting the finishing touches on the squalor. “I just have to make sure they don’t clean up the wrong stuff,” she said.

Hello all, hope everyone is enjoying their holiday season. Visited the exhibition last night and just wanted to include my 2 cents in case anyon
e is on the fence. Went with my wife and brother-in-law at 6pm and was a little surprised at how crowded it was. Nothing crazy but I imagined it would be a little slower during a frigid Saturday evening in the heart of shopping time! The Edith Grove recreation was a lot of fun and so realistic! My favorite displays though were the handwritten lyrics and notes plus the plethora of stage costumes! My wife mentioned that only Mick and Mr Furley could pull off those duds. The 3D concert finale was a dud, just Satisfaction from Hyde Park. Took loads of cell phone pics, only disallowed in the backstage" area, not sure why. Overall we spent nearly 2 hours going through, you should skip the gift shop. Had a lot of fun but wouldn't see a reason to go a second time, especially at 37$ a go!

I'm hoping LA as well, but considering the boys might be heading to Europe next year, it would seem like the show might travel with them?

Hope not.

What bugs me about the outfits section; where they have Jagger's jumpsuits from '72/'73 - in the forefront they feature this white number, with studs, and I have never seen a picture of Jagger wearing this. There were several in US 72, white ones, but not like that.

So I've done the obligatory searching first, so forgive me if I missed something. I was in the greater New York area for Christmas, and Exhibitionism was my very first stop in Manhattan when I was able to make it into the city on the 28th. Anyway, I was curious what the reasoning was behind the "no photographs" signs / policy in the "backstage" area as you waited for the 3D live performance at the end of the exhibit. My theory is that the guitars weren't the real ones (Micawber wouldn't be exhibited in an open area where you could step over a line on the floor and touch it, and the tele they had didn't look as battered as Keith's) and the Stones family didn't want photos floating around with fairly obvious replicas being displayed (thus discrediting the entire exhibit). Any thoughts?

That being said (asked), I was completely floored by the overall experience... What an exhibit!

I believe Chicago may be next. Perhaps in March. LA may be after that.

I'm not a photographing type of sssoul, but if I'm not mistaken
the "no photographs" policy applies to the entire exhibition.
It's just not especially strenuously enforced.

Exhibitionism - NYC...a question for anyone who has visited already

What did you think of the "museum"?

To be more specific, I am thinking of going later this month and was wondering how much time to budget to get a thorough satisfying look. It seems to you buy tix based on your entry time. If I go after work; I don't want to be kicked out the door before seeing everything it has to offer (it looks like they close up shop at 9PM on weekends).

Thanks for your input!

I saw it in London and spent about 2 hours. It kind of depends how much time you want to spend reading the various descriptions of things and so on. I was a bit tight for time, but - IMO - I would think 3 hours would be plenty to soak everything in. The gift shop potentially takes some time too (I'm assuming NY has a similar set up).

It's good to allow yourself time to stand and look and ponder about all the amazing music etc that has been made with such and such a guitar etc.

I gazed upon Keith's les paul custom for ages both times I went. A lot of people just had a quick look and moved on. Maybe my constant in the way presence had someing to do with that though. grinning smiley

It was a twice in a lifetime chance to see it, so every part of that guitar got a good looking at! smoking smiley

I went about a month ago on a Monday afternoon ($30 tickets) and spent about 3 hours in the exhibit itself, but there was not much of a crowd at that time. As DEmerson said, it depends on how much time you want to spend reading the various descriptions. I spent a lot of time looking at the vintage instruments, stage outfits and album covers, and not so much listening to Don Was talking about the Stones in the studio.

In New York, the gift shop is across the street from the exhibit building. If you buy tickets in advance, I'm not sure you even have to stop there, unless you want to see how much they charge for putting the tongue logo on something.
