You know you are an icon when a museum devotes an exhibition to you

Taylor Swift is officially a pop culture icon.

The Museum of Arts and Design in New York is to present Taylor Swift: Storyteller, a career-spanning look at the artistic reinventions of the 12-time Grammy Award–winning songwriter and singer.

Opening on May 20, the exhibition will be on view exclusively at MAD through September 4, 2023.

Taylor Swift: Storyteller highlights include the cheerleader and ballerina ensembles from the award-winning music video for Shake It Off (2014); the red wedding dress and bellhop uniform from I Bet You Think About Me (2021) and the sparkling ensemble from Bejeweled (2022),

Concert attire by couture fashion houses will be featured along with props, jewelry and projections of music videos rounding out the exhibition.

“At MAD, fashion and the decorative have long been valued as a critical visual language and no one speaks that language quite like Taylor Swift,” says Alexandra Schwartz, the museum's curator of modern and vontemporary art, craft, and design.

“Whether dressed down in a flannel shirt and untamed hair or literally dazzling her audiences in head-to-toe Swarovski crystals, Taylor gives greater meaning to the palettes, textures, and depths of feeling expressed in her songwriting.”

OK. Alexandra is obviously a huge fangirl.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a series of public programs and events inspired by Swift's fan base: from video and film screenings to karaoke singalongs.

Additionally, The Store at MAD will stock a curated selection of Taylor Swift merchandise, from apparel to accessories. That was a given. This is the US after all. The dollar is king.

Tickets for the exhibition cost $US25 per person. For more information, visit
