The Museum of Modern Art has announced it will present an exhibition of Björk’s music and art in 2015. The collection, simply titled Björk, will explore 20 years of Björk’s work — from her seven full-length albums Debut (1993) to Biophilia (2011) — as well as examining her captivating visuals, collaborations with video directors, photographers, fashion designers and other artists. Her work as a member of Sugarcubes which predates her solo career will not be included. The exhibition culminates with a newly commissioned, immersive music and film experience conceived and realized with director Andrew Huang and 3-D design leader Autodesk. Björk will be on view exclusively from March 7 through June 7, 2015.

Obligatory press release gush from Klaus Biesenbach, Chief Curator at Large at MoMA and Director of MoMA PS1: “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. This highly experimental exhibition offers visitors a direct experience of her hugely collaborative body of work.”

In unrelated news, Björk and artist husband Matthew Barney are said to have bought a cozy $2 million home in the Ft. Greene section of Brooklyn. Welcome to the neighborhood, guys.
