Taylor Swift: Storyteller

Through Sep 4, 2023

Exhibition tickets are now on sale. Tickets to this special exhibition are timed entry and there are a limited number available each hour. Visitors to Taylor Swift: Storyteller will have full access to the Museum. Tickets are non-refundable and there are no discounts.

Taylor Swift: Storyteller is a career-spanning look at the artistic reinventions of the 12-time GRAMMY Awardwinning artist who is one of the most prolific songwriters in history. 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 (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault),” which featured Miles Teller and was directed by Blake Lively (2021); and the sparkling ensemble from “Bejeweled” (2022), directed by Taylor Swift. Concert attire by couture fashion houses are featured along with props, jewelry, ephemera, and projections of music videos rounding out the exhibition. 

Taylor’s emotional songwriting is the catalyst for the captivating worlds she brings to life on stage and screen through exquisitely crafted costumes, inventive stage design, and imaginative iconography. Swift has discussed the pressures that female musicians feel to constantly alter their public images, and regularly addresses gender norms in her videos, performances, and public appearances. 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.
