Björk’s Retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)

by Lauren Clemente

Our Icelandic queen, Björk, is back at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in NYC for her very own retrospective! I had the opportunity to check it out the other day, and honestly, I had no idea what to expect.

I was handed an audio guide with headphones and there was a vibrant buzz around the MoMA as I followed the bright pink wall toward the Björk Songlist exhibit. After a brief introduction, I stepped into the first space of the exhibit and was delighted by the sounds of Bjork’s music. The exhibit touches on popular songs like Hyperballad, All is Full of Love, Pagan Poetry, Wanderlust, and more.

It was also a visual experience: gorgeous costumes worn by Bjork through the last 22 years filled the space, along with old photos and lyrics scribed in multiple journals. If you’re big fans like we are, you’ll have an amazing time getting so immersed in Bjork’s work. 

Björk was our BUST cover gal in both 1996 and 2005. We clearly adore the singer, and are super excited she’s being celebrated in our very own city! 

Björk’s Retrospective is in the Museum of Modern Art from March 8, 2015-June 7, 2015 on 11 W 53rd St. Check it out!
