Venice: Palazzo Fortuny – The Bottega Cadorin - A Dynasty of Venetian Artists exhibition

Venice: Palazzo Fortuny – The Bottega Cadorin - A Dynasty of Venetian Artists exhibition. In the suggestive setting of Palazzo Fortuny, until March 27, The Bottega Cadorin exhibition stems from the need to protect an extraordinary artistic and historical heritage: a record of intense activity by at least three generations of artists, architects, musicians and photographers working in Venice between the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The genealogy of this family, who are worthy successors to the great art workshops of the Republic of Venice, represents a unique interweaving of lives under the banner of art, from the sculptor Vincenzo, the photographer Augusto Tivoli and the Fiorini lute-makers, to the architect Brenno del Giudice and the painters Guido Cadorin, Livia Tivoli, Ida Barbarigo and Zoran Music.

New York: Industria - Exhibitionism – The Rolling Stones

“We've been thinking about it for quite a long time but wanted it to be just right and on a large scale just like planning our touring concert productions. I think right now it's an interesting time to do it.”

New York: Industria  - Exhibitionism – The Rolling Stones. Exhibitionism – The Rolling Stones, until March 12, is a must-see show making its American debut at Industria, West Village.  It tells the story of the most influential rock ‘n’ roll band in the world. Unlocking their vast archive, this spectacular exhibit is a Rolling Stones treasure trove, curated over nine thematic gallery spaces. Exhibitionism is an immersive, interactive music experience, showcasing 500 items from original stage costumes, rare instruments and lyric books, backstage and touring paraphernalia, album art, photography, stage designs, personal diaries, and never before released audio and behind-the-scenes footage.

Exhibitionism – The Rolling Stones
Through this immersive exhibit, The Rolling Stones - Exhibitionism shows their incredible journey from their early days living together - an immersive realistic reconstruction - a tiny flat in Edith Grove, their first shared flat in London, to headlining the biggest stages in the world.

Exhibitionism – The Rolling Stones
The exhibition, highlights include a recreation of The Rolling Stones recording studio complete with original instruments and interactive mixing desks.

“While this is about the Rolling Stones, it's not necessarily just about the members of the band. It’s also about all the paraphernalia and technology associated with a band, like as well as the instruments that have passed through our hands over the years, that will make the exhibition really interesting.”

 Above. Keith Richards’s guitars: 1960 - Gibson les Paul Junior – stripped finish, which he used on the Dynamic Sound Studio sessions in Kingston, Jamaica where the band recorded Goats Head Soup. Keith used the Maton EG240 – 1960 – natural, on the Let It Bleed album sessions at Olympic Studios.

‘’It’s hard to believe that it's more than fifty years since we began, and it is wonderful to look back to the start and bring everything up to date at this exhibition.’’

Bridges to Babylon Tour – Sets

“I was particularly interested in the beautiful bridges that Santiago Calatrava was building in Seville and elsewhere. When we where designing the staging for the Voodoo Lounge Tour, I had said to Mark Fisher, ‘I want to have this bridge; we’ll have the main stage there, and then we can have a bridge to here, here and here.’ Mark just said, ‘Oh, what a useless idea.’ So when the Bridges to Babylon Tour came round, Mark threw my own idea back to me. He said, ‘OK. If you give me a million dollars, I can make a bridge that will emerge from the stage and land on the B stage.’ And I said, ‘It’s a go.’”

“Andy and I decided to do a set of lithographs.  It was an artistic thing.  He was also making money and, you know, Andy was a guy that wanted to make money.  He had a huge operation, running his big Factory in downtown New York City, and we did 250 sets and there were 10 in asset.  At the same time, he did three or four portraits – these society portraits.”

“I think it stood the test of time because it’s a universal statement.  Sticking out your tongue at something is very anti-authority, and a protest, really.  Maybe young people of various generations pick that up.  I’m amazed now, and probably always will be, that it’s travelled so far round the world.”
