Pink Floyd's V&A exhibition to feature stage props

The Pink Floyd exhibition will open at London's V&A Museum in May 2017

London's V&A Museum will display artefacts from across the history of rock band Pink Floyd in a major new exhibition that opens in May 2017.

The show, titled The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains, will feature original album artwork and instruments alongside stage sets from some of the band's legendary live shows.

It will celebrate 50 years since the release of their first single, Arnold Layne, in 1967.

Martin Roth, director of the V&A says: "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.

"Pink Floyd is an impressive and enduring British design story of creative success.

"Alongside creating extraordinary music, they have for over five decades been pioneers in uniting sound and vision, from their earliest 1960s performances with experimental light shows, through their spectacular stadium rock shows, to their consistently iconic album covers.

"The exhibition will locate them within the history of performance, design and musical production by presenting and complementing the material from Pink Floyd's own archive with the V&A's unrivalled collections in architecture, design, graphics and literature."

It follows on from recent exhibitions centred on artists such as David Bowie and the Rolling Stones.
