Björk (Exhibition Catalogue)
Description
With contributions by Klaus Biesenbach, Alex Ross, Nicola Dibben, Timothy Morton, and Sjón.

Bjö rk is a contemporary icon whose contributions to music, video, film, fashion, and art have influenced a generation worldwide. Designed by top graphic design agency M/M as a slipcased world of wonders, this publication- which accompanies The Museum of Modern Art's spring 2015 exhibition- is composed of six parts: four booklets, a paperback, and a poster. The booklets contain illustrated texts by curator Klaus Biesenbach, New Yorker music critic Alex Ross, professor of musicology Nicola Dibben, and philosopher Timothy Morton (in conversation with Bjö rk), while the poster features artwork from Bjö rk's albums and singles. The poster itself is composed of small perforated stickers, similar to a giant sheet of stamps. The main book focuses on her major albums and the personas created for each one. Poetic texts by longtime collaborator Icelandic poet Sjón are accompanied by shots of Bjö rk performing live; stills from music videos made by directors including Michel Gondry, Chris Cunningham, and Spike Jonze; images of Bjö rk in costumes by designers such as Alexander McQueen and Hussein Chalayan; and shots by photographers such as Nan Goldin, Juergen Teller, Stéphane Sédnaoui, Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, and Araki.
