The Marley family, in conjunction with Terrapin Station Entertainment, is delighted to announce that the Bob Marley One Love Experience has made its global debut at London’s iconic Saatchi Gallery for a limited ten-week exhibition before embarking on a multi-city tour. This unique experience showcases unseen Marley photographs and memorabilia whilst immersing audiences on a journey through his lifestyle, passions, influences, and enduring legacy. Venture through the One Love Forest, visit the Soul Shakedown Studio and delve into the multi-sensory experience celebrating one of the world’s most beloved and unifying musical and cultural figures in this unique exhibition.
The launch event on 02 February 2022 saw Levi Roots, Benjamin Zephaniah, Ian Wright and many more legendary names come together for a true celebration of Bob Marley’s legacy with an exclusive chance to explore the exhibition. There were positive vibrations all around as DJ Trevor Nelson set the soundtrack for a night of dancing, laughing and the remembrance of a musical and cultural icon.
Cedella Marley, CEO-Bob Marley Group of Companies, said “We’ve been wanting to launch a Bob Marley touring exhibit for many years and we’re thrilled to see it come to life and debut in London, which had a very special place in Daddy’s heart. Going through every room I think you leave with a little piece of Daddy. Seeing those pictures with the smile on his face he feels very much alive. You see the musician, you see the family man, you see the sports guy. The experience can be enjoyed by all generations, and we look forward to continuing to spread Daddy’s music and message to the globe.”
“It’s so exciting to finally see the Bob Marley One Love Experience open to the public after being involved in its development and curation. We hope that fans of Bob’s come together, enjoy this exhibit and take a bit of its positivity away with them and sprinkle that back into the world. Bob’s legacy should be celebrated not only for his music but also for his ever-lasting impact on culture and humanity,” says Jonathan Shank, CEO Of Terrapin Station, and director and producer of The Bob Marley One Love Experience.
Fans can venture through the exhibition, greeted by different elements of Bob Marley’s multi-faceted life.
