The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains opens on the 13 May at London’s Victoria & Albert Museum.
Pink Floyd’s founder members Roger Waters and Nick Mason launched the forthcoming exhibition at London’s May Fair Hotel earlier this month. The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains brings together high tech audio visual events, objects, surreal landscapes to create an immersive journey through the band’s history. It all marks 50 years since the release of the band’s highly influential debut album, The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn.
The exhibition takes visitors through the life of the band, from the early underground club scene in the 1960 through The Dark Side Of The Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals, The Wall and The Division Bell, to the present day.
It boasts over 350 objects and artefacts, including some never seen before, including hand-written lyrics, musical instruments, letters, original artwork and stage prop, among others.
Created by Aubrey ‘Po’ Powell (one half of Hipgnosis – who crafted the world famous artwork for Dark Side of the Moon, and became Pink Floyd’s creative team) and Paula Webb Stainton (who worked closely with the band), the exhibition promises a rare and exclusive glimpse into the band’s world.
The exhibition opens on 13 May 2017 for 20 weeks. Tickets are on sale now through Ticketmaster.co.uk.
