Retrospective of Björk at Museum of Modern Art, New York Opens March 8th, 2015

Icelandic musician, Björk will open a full career retrospective show at Museum of Modern Art, New York on March 8th, 2015.  The retrospective titled, Björk is dedicated to the multifaceted work of the singer, composer, and musician, illuminating her contributions to performance art, recordings, film, costumes, instruments and visuals throughout her expansive 20 year career.

The full-scale exhibition produced in collaboration with MoMA’s Chief Curator at Large, Klaus Biesenbach and Björk, will bring together a chronology of sounds, installations, objects, videos and all that contributes to the experience of what she creates through and around her music. The exhibition guided by a narrative co-written by the artist and Icelandic writer Sjón Sigurdsson, will begin with the release of Björk’s first mature solo album, Debut, in 1993, and move through her career chronologically up to her most recent album release in 2015, including her new video and music installation commissioned especially for the Museum, Black Lake (which also appears on her new album, Vulnicura).

The highly anticipated retrospective show will open March 8th and run until June 7th 2015.
