The fancy-pants establishment known as the Museum of Modern Art announced today that it will put up an exhibit dedicated to the work of Bjork. It will have to be a fairly large exhibit if it’s to include something from every aspect of the career of the Icelandic songstress.

According to a press release, the MoMA retrospective will cover the last 20 years of Bjork’s work, including all of her solo albums, as well as her visual and performance art works. From the press release:

The installation will present a narrative, both biographical and imaginatively fictitious, cowritten by Björk and the acclaimed Icelandic writer Sjón Sigurdsson. Björk’s collaborations with video directors, photographers, fashion designers, and artists will be featured, and the exhibition culminates with a newly commissioned, immersive music and film experience conceived and realized with director Andrew Huang and 3-D design leader Autodesk.

This art installation will also include a first for a MoMA exhibit — an iPad app. The app, ‘Biophilia,’ is meant to accompany and supplement Bjork’s album of the same name. The installation is scheduled to open March 7, 2015, and run through June 7.

The app is also making its way into European classrooms. The app fuses science and music to teach environmental values. Educators are currently developing a curriculum around the app, which has already been used in the Nordic regions as an informational tool.
