The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains

If you listen carefully, you can hear the sound of countless millennials thanking the V&A for providing them with the perfect activity for parental visits to London over the summer. The museum’s Pink Floyd exhibition, Their Mortal Remains, is the band’s first major international retrospective and destined to be the ultimate in cross-generational entertainment. As is befitting the subject, this is not going to be a staid objects-in-cabinets affair. In what’s being described as an “immersive, multi-sensory and theatrical journey”, the exhibition will take in everything from the band’s iconic stage design and artwork to their groundbreaking experimentation with special effects, and—of course—the music. Starting from their beginnings in the 1960s, there will be more than 350 objects on display, some of them never seen before, as well as also unseen concert footage and a laser show.
