Heavy bass and hip-hop from the Night Slugs crew (Sheen, Helix, and Bok Bok); club bangers and throwbacks from Blaqstarr; and raw, melodic raps from both Despot, and Corbin and Bobby Raps created the perfect fusion of electronic and hip-hop for last Saturday’s Warm Up Read more

Last Saturday’s Warm Up had a patriotic spirit complete with old-school dance beats, crowd surfing in a sea of red, white, and blue, and Nicky Siano’s “Return of Libby,” featuring Nicky himself in full Statue of Liberty garb. His reimagined constitution—allowing people the important rights of dancing and partying—seemed to take over the crowd, dancing right up to the start of the fireworks display in Long Island City.

The NY Art Book Fair, which runs September 26–28 at MoMA PS1, is the world’s premier event for artists’ books, catalogues, and zines. We asked a few of this year’s 350-plus vendors for tips on tackling the overwhelming amount of merchandise, what’s on their personal shopping list, and more. Read more

Warm Up 2014 Finale: Week 10 Highlights

Warm Up 2014 has officially ended. The last day was quite the finale—there was a thunderstorm, two special guests, and a packed courtyard that danced for hours. Our secret headliner was Skrillex, who played after surprise guest ILoveMakonnen, Evian Christ, Lone (live), Sophie, and Doss. The Principals returned as our set designers.

Each Warm Up had a unique lineup and energy that kept everyone staying until the very end, begging the DJs for just one more song. We had performers from all over the globe, with some local favorites thrown into the mix as well. Thanks to everyone who worked on Warm Up and helped make it such a wonderful success.

Check out the slideshow, and we’ll see you next year!

Warm Up 2014: Design Playground

Every summer, in addition to the convergence of exhibitions, dance troupes, music performances, and the Young Architects Program installation, we are thrilled that design has become an integral part of Saturdays at Warm Up. For the past four seasons, Warm Up has invited local, emerging artists to envision and realize pop-up performance environments for our stage set, which rotate every weekend. This year Chen Chen & Kai Williams (@chenandkai), CONFETTISYSTEM (@confettisystem), Fort Makers (@fortmakers), Fort Standard (@fort_standard), Nightwood (@nightwoodny), and The Principals (@the_principals) each present their own take on summer vibes with installations that give each studio the opportunity to realize a large-scale and event-specific creation.
