Tickets for The Pink Floyd Exhibition – Their Mortal Remains will be available from Thursday 27th February 2014 from the Official Pink Floyd Exhibition website here.
The 4 week long exhibition residency will be held at Fabbrica del Vapore, via Procaccini 4, Milan in Italy. The event will launch on Friday 19th September 2014 and run for 4 weeks until Sunday 19th October 2014 with tickets costing a very reasonable €15 euros.
Aubrey “Po” Powell, from Hipgnosis who created many of Pink Floyd’s iconic album covers, is the curator of the event and creative director. There is also involvement from stage set designers Stufish who designed many of Pink Floyd’s stage sets.
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 way before the name Pink Floyd came into existence.
It 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… It represents the contributions the band made to the world: some of the greatest records ever made and the extraordinary live shows that Pink Floyd performed, from The Dark Side of the Moon to The Wall. 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.
This is looking like it could be a pretty amazing event and should not be missed if you are able to make the journey over to Italy. Your humble narrator is making enquiries and conducting research to make sure he is in attendance on the final weekend.
