Posters advertising the Rolling Stones new exhibition ‘Exhibitionism’ have been banned on all London Transport until a more suitable poster is produced. The exhibition that will tour the world with over 500 artefacts of the band’s career is set to open at London’s Saatchi Gallery on April 6, 2016, but at this current moment has no poster to promote it. Mark Norton designed the advert showing the midsection of a female with the Stone’s memorable tongue logo positioned in a rather provocative place.
The plan for Norton is to redesign the poster with the tongue covering a female’s navel area instead. A spokesperson for the Rolling Stones 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”. Above, you can see the original poster before the alterations.
