London’s Victoria and Albert Museum today announced the first major international retrospective of Pink Floyd, one of the world’s most pioneering and influential bands. To mark 50 years since the band released their first single Arnold Layne, and over 200 million record sales later, The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains will be an immersive, multi-sensory and theatrical journey through Pink Floyd’s extraordinary world. A story of sound, design and performance, the exhibition will chronicle the music, iconic visuals and staging of the band, from the underground psychedelic scene in 1960s London to the present day, illustrating their groundbreaking use of special effects, sonic experimentation, powerful imagery and social commentary.

The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains, will open on Saturday, 13 May 2017, with sonic experience by Sennheiser, and will celebrate the band’s era-defining work in composition, staging, design, film, music technology, graphic design and photography. It will feature more than 350 objects and artefacts including never-before-seen material. Highlights will include spectacular set and construction pieces from some of Pink Floyd’s most innovative and legendary album covers and stage performances including The Dark Side of the Moon, The Wall and The Division Bell, instruments, music technology, original designs, architectural drawings, handwritten lyrics and psychedelic prints and posters.

At the exhibition, visitors will have the unique opportunity to experience never-before-seen classic Pink Floyd concert footage and a custom-designed laser light show.

Per celebrare 50 anni dall’uscita del primo singolo Arnold Layne, e dopo 200 milioni di dischi venduti, The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains sarà un viaggio immersivo, multi sensoriale e teatrale attraverso il mondo straordinario dei Pink Floyd. Una storia di suoni, design e performance, così la mostra celebrerà la musica, gli effetti visivi e le esibizioni della band, dalla scena psichedelica underground della Londra 1960 ai giorni nostri, mettendo in luce il loro rivoluzionario uso degli effetti speciali, le sperimentazioni sonore e la testimonianza sociale.

La mostra, che inaugurerà il prossimo 13 Maggio, mostrerà più di 350 oggetti e artefatti incluso materiale video e foto inediti, strumenti, progetti originali e disegni architettonici, testi scritti a mano insieme a stampe psichedeliche e poster.
