EXHIBITION PROMO RUN AGROUND ON LONDON TRANSPORT
A poster promoting a Rolling Stones art exhibit was deemed too lewd for London’s public transport system.
The poster had been placed on city buses and the London subway for an exhibition titled Exhibitionism kicking off at the Saatchi Gallery in Chelsea in April, 2016.
The “too lewd” artwork features a female model’s midsection and bikini bottoms with the Rolling Stones’ tongue logo.
It was replaced with a new poster that merely moved the tongue logo up to the model’s navel.
A Rolling Stones spokesman said > “We are dumbfounded and perplexed at this rather silly decision. Perhaps something to do with the fact that it’s the Rolling Stones and controversy still seems to follow them everywhere.”
The exhibit is set to tour the world and features band memorabilia including unseen videos and audio files, plus about 500 posters, photos, stage designs and instruments played by the Stones. It is the first ever exhibition of personal items from band members.
