mind over matter: the images of pink floydThis month sees a very special exhibition opening in London. Celebrating the 40th anniversary of his first commission for Pink Floyd - the cover for 1968's "A Saucerful Of Secrets" - and the unique relationship between the band and artist, the exhibition "Mind Over Matter: Images of Pink Floyd" (details below) travels through time revisiting those significant moments in their musical history.

The exhibition - which opens on July 24th in London, and runs for two and a half weeks - will have on display 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 for sale, and all signed by Storm Thorgerson. The exhibition coincides with the recent 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 can be found here. You can order the book - an essential item for all Floyd fans - at time of writing with a healthy discount, through the following links which help Brain Damage with our running costs: Amazon UK, Amazon US/International, Amazon Canada, Amazon Germany, or Amazon France.

The exhibition itself will be held at, Oxo Tower Wharf, Bargehouse Street, South Bank, London, SE1 9PH from Thursday July 24th, until Sunday August 10th 2008. The gallery is open daily from 11am to 6pm and admission to the exhibition is free. For further information on the gallery, please visit
