The eagerly anticipated exhibition is finally in London and open to the public – but what have the critics made of it?
The Guardian: ****Michael Hann found that: “fans will be thrilled by the chance to see clothes and objects at first hand that they’ve seen a million times in videos and films.”
The Independent:**** Adam Sherwin predicted: ” future generations will seek it out to discover just what this “rock n’ roll” that entranced their grandparents was all about.”
The Mirror: Halina Watts said: “this exhibition brings to life the most rock and roll band of the 21st century.”
The Telegraph: ****Mark Hudson commented: “Whatever misgivings you may have about the Rolling Stones, this show will make you realise how much you’ve had them in your life.”
Time Out: *** Oliver Keens wrote: “While Exhibitionism is as big and brash as the band itself, at times Exhibitionism veers toward the obscure and trivial.”
The Upcoming: ****Edward Till thought that: “So while Exhibitionism presents an uneven mixture of trivial and profound material, it also feels very true to the charming contradictions of the band’s identity.”
Love London Love Culture: “It is a great tribute to a band that shows no signs of slowing down just yet.”
Londonist: **** Will Noble said: “For a show that oozes rock and roll, there’s scant sex and drugs. ”
City A.M: ***** Steve Hogarty called it: “An essential experience for anyone with even the barest interest in rock music, it will leave you energised.”
The Arts Desk:****Tim Cumming said: “If you’re a Stones fan you’ll immerse yourself fully and luxuriously in Exhibitionism, though prices are pretty steep for those more casually interested.”
