Focusing on their entire career...
NME reports that Pink Floyd will have a exhibition in Milan, Italy called "Their Mortal Remains". It will open for four weeks starting September 19 at the La Fabbrica Del Vapore. Tickets go on sale Thursday, February 27.
Fran Tomasi, organizer of the exhibition, says it will be a retrospective of their career that takes guests 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." Tomasi is also the band's Italian promoter. She claims she has the full support and involvement of Roger Waters, David Gilmour and Nick Mason.
Aubrey Powell, curator and partner of Storm Thorgerson (who designed most of Pink Floyd's album art), added: "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, five 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."
