The Museum of Modern Art will host an all-encompassing retrospective next year on Björk's eccentric career, covering her music, outfits, performances, videos, and everything else that has gone along with them over more than 20 years of her work. The exhibition will include her seven solo LPs, from 1993's Debut to 2011's Biophilia, as well as her collaborations with fashion designers, directors, photographers, and much more. A new work of music and film will be on show too.
A semi-fictional narrative will run through the exhibition
If that all sounds a bit too straightforward, don't worry — there's more. There'll be a narrative running throughout the entire exhibition on her career, but the narrative will mix biographical details and fictitious ones, written in part by Björk herself. "Björk is an extraordinarily innovative artist whose contributions to contemporary music, video, film, fashion, and art have had a major impact on her generation worldwide," chief MoMA curator Klaus Biesenbach says in a statement. "This highly experimental exhibition offers visitors a direct experience of her hugely collaborative body of work."
MoMA also added Björk's app for Biophilia to its collection last week. The app combines each track of the album with an interactive visual component, and it has the honor of being the first app added to MoMA. The Björk exhibit will only be held at MoMA, in New York, and will run from March 7th through June 7th of 2015.
