Pink Floyd exhibition to feature unseen concert footage

A laser light show, handwritten lyrics and previously unseen Pink Floyd concert footage will go on display at the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) in a new exhibition about the legendary band.

The V&A is hoping for a repeat of the huge success it enjoyed with its show on David Bowie in The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains.

It flew a giant inflatable pig – like the one featured soaring above Battersea Power Station on the cover of the album Animals – over the museum to publicise the show.

Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason was at the launch of the show, which will feature 350 objects and artefacts, including instruments, original artworks and psychedelic prints and posters.

Martin Roth, V&A director, said: “The V&A is perfectly placed to exhibit the work of a band that is as recognisable for its unique visual imagery as for its music.”

The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains will run from May 13 to October 1 next year.
