The Pink Floyd Exhibition – Their Mortal Remains will open in Milan’s La Fabbrica Del Vapore on September 19.

The multi-media retrospective has been mounted with the active involvement and collaboration of David Gilmour, Roger Waters and Nick Mason.

Covering 2,500 square metres, it will include 300 artefacts from the band’s career and will chronicle the band’s music and art from their debut album The Piper At The Gates of Dawn to the present. It is described as “a surreal, multi-sensory journey through Pink Floyd’s extraordinary worlds”.

The exhibition is scheduled to run for four weeks and has been curated by Hipgnosis’ Aubrey Powell.

In a statement, Powell said: “If “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.”

Tickets for the four week residency in Milan will be priced at 15 euros, and are on sale Thursday 27 February here.

It is not yet clear what the long-term plans for the exhibition are after the initial four week run in Milan finishes.
