When Exhibitionism – The Rolling Stones Exhibition, delivered by DHL, premiered in London, The Daily Telegraph called it “the most magnificent multi-sensory barrage of Stones 'stuff' you’re ever likely to encounter.” After its star-studded U.S. premiere in New York City, People Magazine said it “is the closest you’ll get to hanging out with the band at key moments in their history.”
The Rolling Stones exhibit went on to three more stops in the US – Chicago, Las Vegas and Nashville – all of which garnered rave reviews and drew huge crowds of music, art and fashion lovers.

Exhibitionism is the largest touring experience of its kind ever to be staged, and the first time in history the band has personally unlocked their vast private archive exploring the very beginning of their history to the Stones’ super-stardom of today.

The exhibit made its Australian debut in Sydney in November 2018 at the International Convention Centre (ICC) – the country’s first fully integrated convention, exhibition and entertainment venue.
It proved a huge hit with fans keen on getting a up close and personal with the band’s history and paraphernalia.

Sydney City News wrote, “this is not a standard static museum set but a highly engaging and at times interactive event.”
“It’s an amazing 3-4-hour experience,” said Executive Producer Tony Cochrane to ABC Australia’s Glen Bartholomew. “It’s huge and it takes a lot of time to absorb it and get through it all – [there are] a lot of interactive elements, a lot of really fascinating stuff really from their entire career.”

The Rolling Stones have been around for over 50 years as one of the most popular rock bands in music history. One of the reasons, says Curator Ileen Gallagher, is that the band always looks forward.

“Mick Jagger and the rest of the members of the band were not interested in looking back in time,” she says. “They always want to look forward, and that’s one of the reasons they’ve been so successful over the last 50 years and they’ve stayed so culturally current.”
“The Stones are the consummate professionals as musicians — they make it all look so easy,” said Mike Parra, CEO of DHL Express Americas. “DHL has a similar workstyle of ‘Excellence. Simply delivered.’ — no matter how complex the logistics.”
