Pink Floyd exhibit comes to Toronto with 350 artifacts and objects
The Pink Floyd Exhibit: Her Remains is coming June 16 at Toronto’s Better Living Center at Exhibition Place.
Described in a press release as an “audiovisual sensory experience,” the 20,000-square-foot exhibit features more than 350 Pink Floyd artifacts and objects from the band’s five-decade career.
It will “feature handwritten lyrics, musical instruments, stage props and items from the band members’ personal collections, combining art, design, music, sound and visual technology.”
The exhibition follows the 50th anniversary of Pink Floyd’s iconic 1973 album. The dark side of the moon.
Presented by Toronto promoter Michael Cohls S2BN Entertainment and the
Canadian National Exhibition Association (CNEA), her remains has welcomed over 500,000 visitors worldwide since opening at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum in 2017, traveling to Rome, Madrid, Los Angeles, Montreal and Dortmund, Germany.
“After a hugely successful performance in Montreal last year, it was time to bring the Pink Floyd Exhibition to Toronto to rock the summer,” Cohl said in a statement.
“It’s only fitting that Pink Floyd is so closely associated with the city, particularly through the sold-out shows of 1987 that ushered in the next phase of their storied career. I am very excited to bring this exhibition to my hometown where we can all celebrate the legacy of Pink Floyd.”

CNEA CEO Darrell Brown added in a statement, “Pink Floyd has a long history in Toronto, beginning with their 1973 premiere concert at Maple Leaf Gardens and having seven performances at Exhibition Stadium in the ’80s and ’90s.” The CNE has a rich musical heritage and we are honored to host this incredible retrospective on the grounds that hosted many of their most memorable Toronto concerts.”
The show was co-produced by Cohl and creative director Aubrey “Po” Powell, who worked with the band on many of their most iconic album covers, in collaboration with Pink Floyd’s drummer Nick Mason.
