This major new exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum examines the band’s musical legacy, taking visitors on an audio and visual journey through Pink Floyd’s career. But what have critics been saying about it?
Evening Standard: **** “a deftly curated, enjoyable romp exploring Floyd’s intricate fusion of sound and vision.”
The Guardian: ***** “as the exhibition makes clear, few bands in rock history have ever been as creative in their attempts to distract attention from themselves.”
The Financial Times: “lavish and entertaining show”
Londonist: **** “Their Mortal Remains is one huge chunk of inspiration to get anyone digging into Pink Floyd’s back catalogue.”
Angels and Urchins: “With swirling psychedelic lights, funky sounds and 70s posters the show grips you from the start.”
The Arts Desk: “It’s brilliant for Pink Floyd fans, but even if you’re not one of those there’s plenty of social, cultural and political history here to sink your teeth into.”
londontheinside.com: “t’s big, bold and incredible to look at, so even if you’re not a die-hard Floyd fan it’s well worth your time.”
London Visitors: “Whilst the exhibition will undoubtedly attract the legions of Pink Floyd fans, it does provide plenty of interest for general visitors.”
The Telegraph: **** “While it is a treat to walk through a darkened corridor illuminated by a holographic representation of the pyramid prism from Dark Side of the Moon, it is still the swirling keyboards and cosmic lead solo that really blow the mind.”
The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains will be on display at the Victoria and Albert Museum until the 1st October. To book tickets visit: Ticketmaster.co.uk, Love Theatre.com and UK Tickets.co.uk .
