The MoMa announces Björk exhibition

on June 18, 2014, 12:30pm

New York City’s Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) has announced Björk, a new exhibition and “full-scale retrospective” chronicling the Icelandic musician’s 20+ year career.

“From Debut (1993) to Biophilia (2011)”, the exhibit aims to look back on her career through “sound, film, visuals, instruments, objects, costumes, and performance.” It will feature a half-fictionalized, half-factual story co-written by Björk herself and Icelandic writer Sjón Sigurdsson. It will also highlight her “collaborations with video directors, photographers, fashion designers, and artists.” Also featured is an “immersive music and film experience” from director Andrew Huang and 3-D software Autodesk.

The exhibition was organized by Klaus Biesenbach, Chief Curator at Large at MoMA, who said in a press release: “This highly experimental exhibition offers visitors a direct experience of her hugely collaborative body of work.” If anything, the whole exhibition sounds like you’ll be able to experience a Björk music video firsthand.

Björk runs from March 7th through June 7th, 2015.

The MoMA also recently acquired her Biophilia app to display in its permanent collection. It’s also now being used in European classrooms.
