Carnaby Street Shop Mock Up

This piece was made in response to the removal of the song ‘Brown Sugar’ from The Rolling Stones’ setlist. The song was criticised for alluding to taboo themes such as the slave trade. My piece explores themes of censorship and black oppression within the music industry. It examines the Stones’ efforts to oppose this as they support black artists and creatives, contradicting the songs' critics.

 This piece would be an advertising campaign within The Rolling Stones’ shop, ‘RS No.9 Carnaby Street’. My project promotes the band’s involvement in endorsing black musicians and black culture.
