MoMA officials promise “a highly experimental exhibition experience” for visitors, which will be more of an installation than a traditional museum show.

that sparkle of beauty that carries us through the marathonsprint of finalizing installation 24/7 this crystal face mask @bjork wore was applied crystal by crystal to her face by the amazing make up artist val garland, who also meticulously recreated it on our mannequin for the @themuseumofmodernart exhibition. #MoMABjork

The exhibit opens on March 8 and runs through June 7. Titled “Björk,” the retrospective comes hot on the heels of her newest album, Vulnicura, released earlier this year.

our registration team has unpacked the beautiful robot head made by chris cunningham for his music video for “all is full of love” (1999). the conservation department is planning to give her a quick check up before reassembling the 2 robots for display in the @bjork exhibition @themuseumofmodernart #MoMABjork
