MoMA’s New Exhibition Will Feature One Of The Craziest Wardrobes In Music

We have a feeling MoMA's exhibition is going to be out of this world…

The Museum of Modern Art in New York has announced a new retrospective exhibition spanning 20 years of Björk’s colossal career as a singer, composer, actress and extraterrestrial style icon. The woman’s talent is on a level of its own.

From her heart-wrenching role in the multi award-winning Lars von Trier film, Dancer in the Dark, to her robotic music video for ‘All Is Full Of Love’, the exhibition will follow her otherworldly career, through the seven full-length studio albums since her solo ‘Debut’ record in 1993.

‘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,’ said Klaus Biesenbach, chief curator at large at MoMA and director of Queens’ MoMA PS1. ‘This highly experimental exhibition offers visitors a direct experience of her hugely collaborative body of work.’

The show will feature a melange of sound, film, visuals, instruments, objects, costumes, and performance, along with a narrative, both biographical and imaginatively fictitious, co-written by Björk and the acclaimed Icelandic writer Sjón Sigurdsson.

Björk’s Retrospective will open from 7 March – 7 June, 2015.
