MoMA PS1 presents “Warm Up 2016” taking place every Saturday this summer through August 27th. A New York summer staple now in its 19th year, “Warm Up”, MoMA PS1’s highly anticipated outdoor music series continues its tradition of introducing audiences to the best in experimental music, sound, and DJs—both local and international—across a range of genres.
Warm Up supports both established and emerging artists by creating a platform that allows for experimentation and provides a space for collaboration, new material, and side projects. This event is held in MoMA PS1’s courtyard, which this year features an installation by Mexico City-based architecture firm “Escobedo Solíz Studio”, the winning design of the 17th annual Young Architects Program (YAP).
The series is programmed by a curatorial committee selected by the museum to represent a wide spectrum of expertise and experience in music, sound, and the performing arts, resulting in a unique lineup of artists that explore, interpret, and combine genres. It is an outdoor event and takes place rain or shine.
