One of the world’s most iconic and influential bands. Presented by the V&A
The first major international retrospective of Pink Floyd will open at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum in May 2017. Entitled Pink Floyd: Their Mortal Remains, the exhibition will take visitors through a ‘multi-sensory theatrical journey’ through the world of the rock legends. The show will chronicle the band’s music, iconic album artwork, the band’s live staging and pieces of musical equipment used by the band during their 50-year career.
Running from May 13th to October 1st 2017, the exhibition will comprise over 350 objects and artefacts, including never-before-seen material, presented alongside works from the V&A’s outstanding collections of art, design, architecture and performance.
Pink Floyd drummer Nick Manson said: “The opportunity to do an exhibition is exciting because it’s not just telling a story, it’s showing how the story worked. It’s not only about the history of the band, but also the technology that went along with it. We encompass a whole section of recording history. I hope there’ll be something for everyone.”
According to Mason, the final decision on what was included in the exhibition lied essentially with the V&A, with the band’s main task being to sift through half a century’s worth of artefacts and to uncover items that would be worth of inclusion.
“The band hasn’t been particularly involved in choosing what goes in, but more to the point, everyone has been looking through the archives to see what they’ve got. And, in fact, Roger has found all sorts of bits and pieces that he’d forgotten he had. Also, David has a very good guitar tech called Phil Taylor who has kept a lot of equipment over years and years, which has been invaluable.”
