Pink Floyd Exhibition - Their Mortal Remains extended in Milan Print E-mail

The Pink Floyd Exhibition - Their Mortal RemainsDue to high international demand for tickets, 'The Pink Floyd Exhibition - Their Mortal Remains', will now continue to run in Milan, Italy, until January 2015. When tickets were launched on February 25th, demand was such that the initial four exclusive weeks has had to be extended. The Exhibition opens on September 19th, 2014 with tickets now available through to January 18th, 2015.

Dominating 27,000 square feet, the exhibition will be staged in Milan's imposing skyline factory Fabbrica del Vapore, and will offer an innovative and entirely unique experience. Six years in the making, commissioned and guided by Pink Floyd members David Gilmour, Roger Waters and Nick Mason along with the family of Richard Wright, the three dimensional experience is designed by Stufish, the stage designers of Pink Floyd’s legendary concerts. Curated by Aubrey 'Po' Powell, of Hipgnosis Ltd, along with Paula Stainton, this immersive exhibition is presented by Italian promoter Fran Tomasi.

This vast and innovative exhibition will take the visitor 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. The Pink Floyd Exhibition is a major international retrospective of one of the world's most pioneering and influential bands and the active involvement and collaboration of the three band members in all planning aspects has been crucial to the execution of it. Tickets for the residency in Milan are priced at 15 euros, and are on sale now via www.pinkfloydexhibition.com.

Po said: "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, 5 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."

Enveloping visitors in Pink Floyd's art and music, the trip will start with the psychedelia of the early years, moving through landscapes populated by the iconic images and sounds associated with the towering concept albums of the 1970's and beyond. The exhibition, housed in an old Milanese factory, will show Pink Floyd's pioneering use of special effects, sonic experimentation and powerful imagery. It will explore the narrative arc of a band that began in London's 'swinging sixties' and whose influence continues today. The visitor can expect an 'interstellar' experience, befitting a band that always defied artistic boundaries.

This all sounds very interesting indeed, and having experienced the 2003 exhibition Interstellar in Paris, we already have a flavour of just how good this is shaping up to be. As more information is revealed, and as we get closer to the opening of the exhibition, we will of course bring you full coverage.
