The Museum of Modern Art announced today that it will present a retrospective of musician Björk’s career in 2015. The exhibition will follow the Icelandic musician, composer, and artist from her first album, Debut to her ventures into fashion and photography.

The exhibition will feature a narrative, co-written by Björk and Icelandic writer Sjón Sigurdsson, that is “both biographical and imaginatively fictitious.” It will also feature costumes, instruments, sound and film pieces to chronicle her illustrious career.  The installation is being organized by Klaus Biesenbach, MOMA’s chief curator at large.

The exhibit ends with an immersive “music and film experience” conceived by director Andrew Huang and 3-D design company Autodesk.

"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," Biesenbach said in a statement. “This highly experimental exhibition offers visitors a direct experience of her hugely collaborative body of work."

The exhibit, entitled Björk, will run from March 7 to June 7, 2015.
