Richard Rogers Conservation is pleased to announce that we played an integral part in the delivery of ‘Exhibitionism’, the sensational show, just opened at the Saatchi Gallery, that documents the history of the British rock legends – The Rolling Stones. The exhibition features a number of never before seen pieces including Keith Richard’s diaries, handwritten lyrics and album cover designs as well as a variety of original costumes and a selection of instruments.
RRC was responsible for the conservation, mounting and installation of the collection, which comprises of over 550 objects. Each object was individually condition checked in advance of the exhibition, conservation was undertaken where necessary and a bespoke mount was produced for the majority of pieces. This includes everything from the tape box and lyric sheets right up to the jumping mannequin holding a guitar in each hand!
Stay tuned for photographs of the exhibition but, in the meantime, please see the media’s reaction to the show below:
