The installation will chronicle her career through various genres of art

The artist Björk is getting the full star treatment at New York City’s Museum of Modern Art in 2015.

The museum announced Wednesday it will be presenting a retrospective of Björk’s career drawing from over 20 years of her projects and seven full-length albums. The exhibition will follow her work in sound, film, visuals, instruments, objects, costumes and performance. Björk and Icelandic writer Sjon Sigurdsson are co-writing the narrative to accompany the installation, which will be a mix of biography and fiction.

“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,” said Klaus Biesenbach, chief curator at large at MOMA and director of Queens’ MOMA PS1. “This highly experimental exhibition offers visitors a direct experience of her hugely collaborative body of work.”

The museum has also acquired Björk’s music app for the album Biophilia as part of its collection.

Björk’s MOMA retrospective will be on view from March 7 through June 7, 2015.
