Warm Up 2014

Saturdays, June 28–September 6, 2014
3–9 PM, doors open at Noon

MoMA PS1 presents Warm Up 2014, beginning June 28 and taking place every Saturday this summer through September 6. Now celebrating its 17th year, the museum's highly anticipated outdoor music series will continue its tradition of introducing audiences to the best in experimental live 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. The annual series is held in MoMA PS1's courtyard, which this year will feature a temporary urban landscape by Hy-Fy called The Living, the winning design of the 15th annual Young Architects Program.

This year, Warm Up will be once again conceived by a curatorial committee, selected by the museum to represent a wide spectrum of expertise in music, sound, and the performing arts.

Selected by MoMA PS1 Director Klaus Biesenbach and organized by MoMA PS1 Curatorial Assistant and Warm Up Producer, Margaret Knowles, the Warm Up 2014 committee includes: Dean Bein, Head of True Panther Sounds; Robin Carolan, Head of Tri Angle Records; Jonathan Galkin, Co-Founder of DFA Records; Eliza Ryan; Brandon Stosuy, Senior Editor for Pitchfork; Imogene Strauss, of Cool Managers; and Matt Werth, Label Head of RVNG Intl.

In addition, Warm Up will draw from local New York design talent, featuring rotating stage installations, organized by Jocelyn Miller, MoMA PS1 Curatorial Assistant.
