The first and largest exhibition of its kind, offering a rare insight into the lesser known side of the original Pink Floyd frontman’s inspiration and creativity. The exhibition included a series of previously unseen photographs ranging from intimate images from Syd’s childhood holidays through to the psychedelic hothouse of 1960s progressive rock as well as personal love notes written during the early days of Pink Floyd. Not only a stunning documentary of Syd Barrett, the exhibition featured a series of completely unseen photographs of early Pink Floyd, including the first ever images of the band playing live in Denmark and images by the photographer Mick Rock that he had previously considered lost forever. The exhibition also included an extraordinary collection of Syd Barrett’s original artworks --- the largest to date. The exhibition put the artist in a completely new light; celebrating his life as an exceptionally gifted painter as well as iconic musician. The show accompanied the publication of the book ‘Barrett: The definitive visual companion’ by Essential Works.
