New Pink Floyd Exhibition Announced
"Their Mortal Remains" will be staged in Milan this September.
The exhibition will take place in Milan’s La Fabbrica Del Vapore, taking the visitor on a "surreal, multi-sensory journey through Pink Floyd’s extraordinary worlds, chronicling the music and art of Pink Floyd, from their debut album ‘The Piper At The Gates of Dawn’ to the present".
The 2,500 metre Milanese factory space will show Pink Floyd’s pioneering use of special effects, sonic experimentation and powerful imagery.
Aubrey Powell, who alongside the late Storm Thorgerson helped create many of Pink Floyd's iconic album sleeves, will be directing and curating the exhibition.
“If ever a band lent itself to a major retrospective exhibition it’s Pink Floyd. For a curator, selecting what to include from such a treasure trove, is both a dream and a nightmare: however there were elements that just had to be included, for example a 20 metre-wide sculpture of The Wall, 5 metre high inflatables and of course a flying pig. We shall be aiming for state-of-the-art, visuals and sonic delivery, similar to the experience of attending a Pink Floyd concert, you never know what to expect next.”
He has worked alongside co-creative director Paula Stainton and taken consultation from Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters, David Gilmour and Nick Mason to create the experience.
"The Pink Floyd Exhibition - Their Mortal Remains" opens on the 19th September. Tickets go on sale on the 17th February via www.pinkfloydexhibition.com, priced at fifteen Euros.
