The exhibition at the MACRO Museum of Contemporary Art in Rome
Rome – Pink Floyd: Their Mortal Remains
The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains
50 years after the birth of one of the most innovative and influential musical groups in history, the Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains has arrived in London.
The exhibition is under way at the MACRO Museum of Contemporary Art in Rome, via Nizza.
After the huge success of the debut a few months ago at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, which saw the participation of more than 400,000 people.
Designed by Storm Thorgerson and developed by Aubrey ‘Po’ Powell of Hipgnosis, who worked closely with Nick Mason (consultant of the show on behalf of Pink Floyd), The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains is an audiovisual journey in 50 years of career of one of the most legendary rock bands of all time
The colossal setting of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, described by the English newspapers as “impressive”, has been the most visited of its kind ever. Exclusively for Italy, the MACRO will host the exhibition and Mason himself remembers that – less than 1 kilometer away – just one of the first Pink Floyd concerts in Italy took place at Piper in April 1968.
The exhibition itinerary that guides the visitor following a chronological order, is always accompanied by the music and voices of past and present members of Pink Floyd, including Syd Barrett, Roger Waters, Richard Wright, Nick Mason and David Gilmour. The highlight is the Performance Zone, in which visitors enter an immersive audiovisual space, which includes the recreation of the last concert of the four members of the band at the 2005 Live 8 with Comfortably Numb, specially mixed with the avant-garde AMBEO audio technology 3D by Sennheiser, in addition to the video, exclusively for Rome, by One Of These Days, based on the historical performance of the group in Pompeii.
