The Museum of Modern Art New York will present a full-scale retrospective dedicated to the multifaceted work of the composer, musician, and artist Björk in 2015. Organized by Klaus Biesenbach, Chief Curator at MoMA, the exhibition draws from more than 20 years of the artist’s projects and her seven full-length albums—from Debut (1993) to Biophilia (2011)—to chronicle her career through sound, film, visuals, instruments, objects, costumes, and performance.

The installation will present a narrative, both biographical and imaginatively fictitious, cowritten by Björk and her longtime friend, Icelandic writer Sjón Sigurdsson. Björk’s collaborations with video directors, photographers, fashion designers, and artists will be featured, and the exhibition also features a newly commissioned music and film experience created by Björk, director Andrew Thomas Huang and 3-D design leader Autodesk. Björk has also gifted Biophilia to the museum, which is the first app to enter MoMA’s collection. Björk will be on view from March 7 through June 7, 2015.
