Pink Floyd Reveal Multi-Sensory Exhibition
Pink Floyd members Roger Waters, David Gilmour and Nick Mason are working on a multi-sensory exhibition which aims to offer a "vast and innovative" insight into their career when it opens in Milan in September.

Masterminded by the band's Italian promoter Fran Tomasi, the "Pink Floyd Exhibition - Their Mortal Remains" will run for a week and cover 2,500 square metres of former factory La Fabbrica Del Vapore.

Curator Aubrey Powell of Hipgnosis fame has assembled more than 300 artefacts from Floyd's four-decade history. The installation is being designed by the late Mark Fisher's Stufish company, who have a long history of creating stage sets for the band.

Powell says: "If ever a band lent itself to a major retrospective exhibition, it's Pink Floyd. 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 twenty-metre wide sculpture of the Wall, five-metre high inflatables, and of course, a flying pig.

"We'll be aiming for state-of-the-art visuals and sonic delivery, similar to the experience of attending a Pink Floyd concert; you'll never know what to expect next."

The "Pink Floyd Exhibition - Their Mortal Remains" opens on September 19, with tickets on sale this Thursday (February 27) via PinkFloydExhibition.com.
