Singer Bjork will be the subject of a multimedia retrospective at New York's Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) next year.

The museum will use music, instruments, costumes and film to chart her 21 years as a solo artist.

The "full-scale" installation will feature a "narrative" co-written by the performer and will culminate in an "immersive music and film experience".

The exhibition - organised by Klaus Biesenbach, MoMA's chief curator at large - runs from 7 March to 7 June.

"Bjork 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 Biesenbach in a statement.

"This highly experimental exhibition offers visitors a direct experience of her hugely collaborative body of work."
