Fashion forward -- what next?

The term 'fashion forward' seems to mean items that are ahead of current trends. It is used often as a label for newcomers to fashion, such as Hip Hop or technology. I wonder how long it will be before it is applied to the arts. Will we have 'art forward', to include works that are ahead of their time? Will 'Shock of the Yet to Be' replace 'Shock of the New'? The advance of art from traditional, to modern, to contemporary still seems to have territory to cover. Wait for the Museum of Forward Art.
