mind_over_matter_4_front Celebrating the 40th anniversary of Pink Floyd and the unique relationship between the band and artist, the new exhibition “Mind Over Matter: Images of Pink Floyd” (details below) travels through time revisiting those significant moments in their musical history. To mark the occasion, the exhibition - which opens on Friday - will have on display for the first time ever, all the creative results of musical and artistic collaboration between Pink Floyd and Storm Thorgerson...

Creating visually beautiful and interesting art, Storm's work has featured on a variety of single, album and CD covers for numerous different bands. However it is his work with Pink Floyd that is arguably the most renowned. Part of the same Cambridge social set that spawned Pink Floyd, Storm Thorgerson, and his creative partner Aubrey Powell as Hipgnosis, were first commissioned on Pink Floyd's “A Saucerful of Secrets”. They continued to work with band and their design for “Dark Side of the Moon” has been called one of the greatest album covers of all time. In 1987, Storm's direction for the Pink Floyd video “Learning to Fly” won the best director award at the American Billboard Awards.

Clearly a great meeting of minds, the exhibition will include over sixty photographs, comprising of album covers, single bags, posters, programmes and so forth; all signed by Storm Thorgerson. The exhibition coincides with the release of the fourth edition of the book "Mind Over Matter: Images of Pink Floyd", which includes 50 new, additional pages of previously unreleased material. More details of this fabulous book (including discounted ordering details) can be found here.

The exhibition will be held at the Elms Lesters Painting Rooms in Flitcroft Street, central London, from Friday, November 16th until Tuesday, December 4th. For further information on the gallery, please visit www.elmslesters.com.
