MoMA Is Launching a Huge Bjork Retrospective

by Lara Casselman
Get excited, the Museum of Modern Art has announced plans for an entire Bjork retrospective in 2015, curated by MoMA chief curator and MoMA PS1 director Klaus Biesenbach. 

It was only a matter of time before the museum, which hosted Marina Abramovic's groundbreaking show "The Artist is Present," and Tilda Swinton in a glass box, would team up with Bjork, the world's reigning queen of weird, and the show promises to be just as pop-culturally on point, with a unique 3-D "immersive music and film experience" to culminate the retrospective. 

Last week, The Museum of Modern Art announced that it would be acquiring Icelandic musician Bjork's musical, graphic and interactive Biophilia App. It's the first and only app thus far in the museum's permanent collection.

According to their press release, "The installation will present a narrative, both biographical and imaginatively fictitious, cowritten by Björk and the acclaimed Icelandic writer Sjón Sigurdsson." The show will span Bjork's 20-year career (36 if they count this!) and cover every form of her creative collaborations and works.

We're really hoping the show includes tickets to Bjork's island too. We want to go to there.
