Roger Waters, Nick Mason and David Gilmour have given their blessing and are helping put
together a multi-sensory exhibition dubbed The Pink Floyd Exhibition – Their Mortal
Remains that's set to open in Milan this September.
The trio are working with the band’s Italian promoter, Fran Tomasi, to present the
exhibit, which will run for a week at the massive former factory La Fabbrica Del Vapore.
Aubrey Powell, who will curate the event, has assembled over 300 artifacts spanning four
decades of Pink Floyd history. The Stufish company, a team that created stage sets for
Pink Floyd's massive world tours, have been tabbed to design the installation.
“If ever a band lent itself to a major retrospective exhibition, it’s Pink Floyd.
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 twenty-metre wide
sculpture of The Wall, five-metre high inflatables, and of course, a flying pig. We’ll be
aiming for state-of-the-art visuals and sonic delivery, similar to the experience of
attending a Pink Floyd concert; you’ll never know what to expect next,” Powell tells Classic Rock.
Tickets go on sale Thursday, February 27, via PinkFloydExhibition.com.
