The Rolling Stones: 50 Years on Film

Tags: ,

Celebrating the 50th anniversary of The Rolling Stones, this retrospective traces the film careers of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, and Ronnie Wood, as well as former band members Brian Jones, Mick Taylor, and Bill Wyman, both collectively and individually as composers, performers, producers, and actors. Featuring such rarities as Peter Whitehead’s The Rolling Stones Charlie Is My Darling – Ireland 1965 (1965/2012), which makes its debut after an absence of more than 45 years with additional never-before-seen footage, and Robert Frank’s Cocksucker Blues (1972), the exhibition chronicles the band from the mid-1960s until today through documentaries, fiction features, concert films, music videos, experimental shorts, and archival footage. The exhibition is organized by Joshua Siegel, Associate Curator, Department of Film.

The exhibition is made possible by The Martini Family Foundation.
