Exhibitionism – The Rolling Stones, delivered by DHL, is now open in New York City at Industria, West Village until March 12, 2017, where it continues to receive rave reviews from fans and press alike. After the exhibition's London debut, New York is the first stop on a four-year, four-continent world tour.
The biggest challenge
The move from London to New York was certainly a complex one. Ki McGinity, Production and Project Manager of Exhibitionism, says that the logistics is actually the biggest challenge when touring a show like this.
Over 500 artefacts were shipped in 15 containers by land, air and sea, with the “very high value” and “very high risk” items - nearly 1,500 pounds (650 kilograms) - travelling by air in specially designed crates. “That’s purely about minimizing risk to those items,” says McGinity. Add the trucks in operation for first and last mile delivery and Exhibitionism used three modes of transport to cover the 3,457-mile journey.
It took 68 days to take down, transport and rebuild the exhibition, with the first two weeks were spent packing up the show alone.
