Remember that swan dress Björk wore to the Oscars in 2001? Bet you thought that was just some crazy s**t, huh? Well, it might in fact be art—at least according to the Museum of Modern Art in NYC, which could very well include it in its just-announced retrospective of the cutting-edge singer.

The show is scheduled to open March 7, giving fans plenty of time to get pumped. According to MoMA, the survey will “chronicle her career through sound, film, visuals, instruments, objects, costumes and performance,” and will be organized as partly biographical, partly fictitious “narrative.”

MoMA is obviously a fan of the Icelandic popstress—the app she released for her latest album was the first app ever bought by the museum. The exhibition is currently set to close June 7, 2015.
