London to host major Pink Floyd retrospective exhibit in 2017

PanARMENIAN.Net - A major Pink Floyd retrospective is coming to London's Victoria and Albert Museum next year, NME reports.

Titled The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains, the retrospective is billed as "an immersive, multi-sensory and theatrical journey through Pink Floyd's extraordinary world".

Featuring "never-before-seen classic Pink Floyd concert footage and a custom-designed laser light show", it will run at the historic museum in south Kensington from 13 May to 1 October, 2017.

Pink Floyd's remaining members are understood to have collaborated in compiling the exhibition, which will feature over 350 artefacts including instruments, music technology, original designs, architectural drawings, handwritten lyrics and psychedelic prints and posters. The exhibition will also feature never-before-seen material and set and construction pieces from stage performances including The Dark Side Of The Moon, The Wall and The Division Bell.

Announcing the exhibition earlier today (August 31), the director of the V&A, Martin Roth, hailed Pink Floyd as "an impressive and enduring British design story of creative success".

"Alongside creating extraordinary music, they have for over five decades been pioneers in uniting sound and vision, from their earliest 1960s performances with experimental light shows, through their spectacular stadium rock shows, to their consistently iconic album covers," he said in a press release. "The exhibition will locate them within the history of performance, design and musical production by presenting and complementing the material from Pink Floyd's own archive with the V&A's unrivalled collections in architecture, design, graphics and literature."
