Pink Floyd exhibition to open this fall

A new Pink Floyd exhibition will open in Milan, Italy this fall.

Organized by Pink Floyd's Italian promoter, Fran Tomasi, “The Pink Floyd Exhibition – Their Mortal Remains” will open in Milan's La Fabbrica Del Vapore on September 19.

The vast and innovative exhibition – created with the active involvement and collaboration of Roger Waters, David Gilmour and Nick Mason - will take fans on a surreal, multi-sensory journey through Pink Floyd's extraordinary worlds, chronicling the music and art of Pink Floyd.

The Pink Floyd Exhibition occupies some 2500 square metres and contains over 300 objects especially flown in from all over the world, some of which are the personal property of the band. The exhibition is a celebration of nearly 5 decades of Pink Floyd’s work, including some elements dating back as far as the mid 1960’s when Syd Barrett and Roger Waters played in different bands and before the name Pink Floyd came into existence.

The event runs chronologically, and varies from interviews about Pink Floyd’s music, to their early influences, their recordings, their films, architectural and sculptural sets, inflatables, musical instruments and equipment, photographs, and much more.

There are individual pods about each band member and their solo careers outside of Pink Floyd, and a dedicated Art Room containing over fifty fine art prints and sculptures.

“The Pink Floyd Exhibition – Their Mortal Remains” is billed as a Pink Floyd experience from psychedelia through to the present day.

The Exhibition runs September 19 – October 19; tickets for the four week residency go on sale this Thursday, February 27.
