Björk Exhibition Opens at MoMa on Sunday

By Iceland Review

A retrospective exhibition of the work of Icelandic singer Björk will open in The Museum of Modern Art in New York on Sunday.

“The exhibition draws from more than 20 years of the artist’s daring and innovative projects and her eight full-length albums to chronicle her career through sound, film, visuals, instruments, objects, and costumes,” a description on the museum’s website reads.

In the museum lobby, instruments used on Biophilia (2011) play songs from the album at different points throughout the day. On the second floor, two spaces have been constructed: one is dedicated to a new sound and video installation for ‘Black Lake,’ a song from Björk’s new album Vulnicura (2015); and the second is a cinema room that screens a retrospective in music videos, from Debut (1993) to Biophilia.

On the third floor, Songlines presents an interactive, location-based audio experience through Björk’s albums, with a biographical narrative, written by the acclaimed Icelandic writer Sjón, along with visuals, objects, and costumes.

Entry to the Björk exhibition is included with general museum admission. Timed tickets are required for the Songlines portion of the exhibition, and are available same-day and on-site only, at no additional charge, on a first-come, first-served basis, beginning at 10:30 am daily.

The exhibition runs until June 7.
