On March 8th, the Museum of Modern Art debuted an innovative and multi-medium retrospective of Björk. Detailing her life and artistry over the past 20 years, the exhibit showcases her work as a singer, composer, and musical innovator.
Björk began her career as the lead singer of the Sugarcubes, a late 80s alt-rock band. From her first solo album, Debut, Björk took her place in music history as the woman who brought electronic dance music to the mainstream. With roots in Euro trip-hop, acid jazz, and the primal thump of electronic music, her eclectic, artistic catalogue provides a depth and complexity to the electronic genre.
