Museum of Modern Art
At the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), visitors can see some of the greatest pieces of art in the world up close. The museum's permanent collection features works by artists including Andy Warhol, Vincent van Gogh and Salvador Dalí. Its temporary exhibitions are just as exciting, too. This season, Icelandic artist Björk receives a full-scale survey of her wide-ranging work starting with her eight full-length albums—one attention grabber is an immersive video from the just-released Vulnicura. Opening on March 8, the show also chronicles the eye-popping visual effects, costumes (like her infamous swan dress) and instruments used during the course of the iconoclastic artist's career. In May, the museum has its first solo exhibition dedicated exclusively to the work of Yoko Ono. Yoko Ono: One Woman show, 1960–1971 focuses on the period between 1960 and 1971, which culminated in Ono's unofficial MoMA debut when she released flies on the museum's grounds and called on the public to track them around the City. Slightly less dramatic, this exhibition shows over 100 of Ono's early works on paper, her films, recordings and rare archival footage.
