Musical acts for the 2014 series feature an array of vibrant, creative women who are making their mark on today’s music scene. Veterans and up-and-coming artists perform a range of musical styles, including dream and synth pop, alt-folk, surf rock, neo-soul, and pop punk.
The series was organized in collaboration with PopRally, MoMA’s cross-departmental committee that programs events at MoMA and MoMA PS1.
