An homage to the world-renowned rock and roll band, whose career spans half a century.
The Rolling Stones began life as a London-based blues band at the beginning of the 1960s, but quickly went on to surpass their reputation as poster boys for the British Invasion, becoming one of the most successful rock and roll groups the world has ever seen.
In celebration of their cultural legacy both floors of the Saatchi Gallery are being given over to nine thematic galleries containing over 500 artefacts from every aspect of band’s 50 year career, most of which have been obtained from the members’ personal archives and have never been on public display before.
The collection includes rare instruments, original stage designs, audio and video footage and personal diaries. There will also be a selection of pieces from artists and designers who have collaborated with the band or used them as artistic muses. These include Andy Warhol, Alexander McQueen, Ossie Clarke and Martin Scorsese.
