"On Exhibitionism"

My latest is up at The Normal School. In "On Exhibitionism" I take a deep look at the Rolling Stones' vast, career-spanning museum exhibit, currently at Las Vegas. "What am I doing here" I ask.
I’m a skeptical fan, drawn to the exhibition by my longstanding love for the Stones and their complicated, fascinating career, and by positive word of mouth. Though I natively resist rock and roll under glass, the thesis that music might be dramatized and evoked by objects, truth be told, the amateur archaeologist in me is curious.
You can read the full essay here. (More photos from my visit last May here.)
