Pink Floyd and S2BN Entertainment present The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains, the critically-acclaimed retrospective of one of the world’s most pioneering and influential bands, who are recognized as one of the top selling artists of all time. The exhibition is an unprecedented, innovative and multi-sensory journey through Pink Floyd’s extraordinary worlds, chronicling the music, design and staging of the band, from their debut in the 1960’s through to the present day. It has been produced with active involvement and collaboration from the three surviving band members, and includes artifacts such as instruments, music technology, original designs, architectural drawings, hand-written lyrics, graphics and artwork.
Immersing visitors in Pink Floyd’s iconic visuals and sound, the exhibition begins with the psychedelic sounds of their early years, moving through their internationally renowned concept albums of the 1970’s and beyond. The Pink Floyd Exhibition illustrates the band’s pioneering use of special effects, sonic experimentation and powerful imagery, and explores the narrative arc of a band that began in London’s ‘swinging sixties’ and whose influence continues today. Visitors will gain a unique insight into a group of world-class musicians who have always defied artistic boundaries.
The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains is designed by Stufish entertainment architects, founded by the late pioneering stage designer, Mark Fisher. The exhibition has been curated by Aubrey ‘Po’ Powell, the Creative Director of Pink Floyd, who with his late partner Storm Thorgerson as founders of design company Hipgnosis Ltd., designed much of Pink Floyd’s revolutionary album art. Aubrey Powell curates alongside Paula Stainton for Pink Floyd and, for the V&A, a team led by Senior Curator Victoria Broackes. The curators have worked in close consultation with David Gilmour, Nick Mason, and Roger Waters on the content of the exhibition, which features over 350 artifacts spanning the band’s five decades, alongside material from outside collections of art, design, architecture and performance.
The exhibition set records at London’s V&A in 2017, followed by a remarkable run at Rome’s Museum of Contemporary Art in 2018. It has been described by The Times of London as a “real feast for the senses” and a “veritable treasure trove of artifacts and information” by the Daily Telegraph.
