In one instance, there was even a man singing as a lady (welcome back, Glee!).

The Museum of Modern Art announced Wednesday that it will feature a retrospective dedicated to the Icelandic artist, including her musical career and collaborations. It is being organized by Klaus Biesenbach, MoMA’s curator at large.
