The official Pink Floyd exhibition, dubbed “The Mortal Remains” will make its North American debut later this year in Southern California. Back in 2017, co-founders Roger Waters and Nick Mason were on hand in London to kick off the career-spanning exhibit at the Victoria and Albert Museum. The multimedia exhibit will run at L.A.’s Vogue Multicultural Museum from August 3rd through November 28th.
“Their Mortal Remains” was curated by the band’s longtime creative director and Hipgnosis designer Aubrey “Po” Powell, “and developed closely” with Nick Mason. Rolling Stone reported “The audiovisual exhibition features over 350 items from Pink Floyd’s history — many ‘dusted off’ from storage units and the band members’ personal collections — including handwritten lyrics, musical instruments, letters, original artwork, and stage props.”
Aubrey “Po” Powell and his late partner Storm Thorgerson, conceived and created legendary and timeless album and singles covers for Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Peter Gabriel, Paul McCartney & Wings, Yes, the Scorpions, AC/DC, Peter Frampton, Black Sabbath, Styx, 10cc, and countless others.
