There’s A Björk Retrospective Coming To MoMA And It Includes New Material

Bjork1 Culture // Exhibitions 

Here’s a bit of news to brighten your Monday: MoMA has announced a retrospective of Björk, chronicling her innovative career from the release of her first album Debut. No Sugarcubes stuff up in here.

Described as an immersive music and film experience conceived and realized by Björk with Andrew Thomas Huang, Björk the exhibition opens at MoMA on March 8 and runs through to June 7 and will offer an experience of the Icelandic pixie’s music in ‘many layers’, including instruments, a theatrical presentation, an immersive sound experience, a focused audio guide, and related visualizations—from photography and music videos to new media works.

Organized and commissioned by the MoMA’s Klaus Biesenbach and Björk, it will also include her many bonkers costumes (woohoo) as well as a new video and music installation created just for the museum called Black Lake.

It’s going to be sick.

Björk runs March 8-June 7, 2015 MoMA, 11 West 53rd Street, New York, NY 10019 tel: 212.708.9400
