The Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) is showcasing an exhibition entitled "The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains", dedicated to one of the leading groups in the progressive and psychedelic rock scene. Undoubtedly, the former underground groups have become something of a new obsession for museums, with the Velvet Underground exhibition in Paris and the biggest retrospective devoted to David Bowie, his work and his characters by the V&A in 2013.
The V&A presents a collection of artefacts and visuals relating to the group including album covers, instruments, posters, psychedelic prints, original drawings, lyric manuscripts, unpublished photos and videos of famous stage and live performances.
The Pink Floyd universe has changed and is still changing the way we listen to music and is reflected in the imprint left by the group in pop culture with visual icons such as the prism from the cover of The Dark Side of the Moon or the Atom Heart Mother cow. The exhibition curatorial team, led by Victoria Broackes, collaborated very closely with the fans of the Pink Floyd. She also worked with Aubrey 'Po' Powell, creative director of Pink Floyd and co-founder of Hipgnosis, a well-known graphic design group which has produced many of the group's album covers.
The Stufish Design House is also involved in the scenography of the exhibition, which for a long time developed the sets for Pink Floyd. In short, the program is a multisensory and immersive experience.
