Björk announces next destination for ‘Björk Digital’ VR exhibition

Having previously had showings in Tokyo and London, the exhibition itself allows patrons to immerse themselves in two virtual reality experiences: ‘Family’ and ‘Notget’. Films directed by Andrew Thomas Huang will also be available to view, while footage of Björk performing ‘Quicksand’ in Tokyo will also be part of the new exhibition.
