Now in its 21st season, Warm Up is one of the longest running music programs housed within a museum. As an integral part of MoMA PS1’s curatorial program, Warm Up seeks to elevate innovative and underrepresented voices and connect fans with music’s most important artists. The program’s alumni include contemporary creators Solange, Cardi B, Black Dice, Jamie XX, and Arca, as well as legendary DJs including Ritchie Hawtin, DJ Premier, and Derrick May.

Each year, Warm Up takes place within a site-specific installation by the winners of the annual Young Architects Program. For summer 2018, MoMA PS1’s courtyard will be transformed by Dream The Combine, a Minneapolis-based team whose design features large-scale mirrors that create unexpected visual connections. Warm Up attendees are encouraged to visit the museum galleries and experience MoMA PS1’s acclaimed exhibitions of emerging artists, new genres, and adventurous work by recognized artists.

Warm Up 2010 will feature interdisciplinary collaborations between musicians and artists. On July 24, an entire Warm Up Saturday will be devoted to showcasing music performances involving artists participating in Greater New York, including Emily Roysdon, whose band MEN will perform live, and Kalup Linzy, who will give a live performance set with his ensemble The Sweet, Sampled, and LeftOva, activating simultaneously the architectural Warm Up space and the museum's interior.

Warm Up 2010'S program was conceived by a curatorial committee who, with their wide spectrum of experiences in the music and performing arts fields, will generate a unique blend of genres, ranging from hip hop to R & B, disco to soul, indie pop to experimental orchestration, and electronic to New Orleans street music. Selected by MoMA PS1 Director Klaus Biesenbach, the committee includes Dean Bein, head of True Panther Sounds; Kris Chen, head of A & R at XL Recordings; Robin Carolan, of 20 Jazz Funk Greats and head of Tri Angle Records; Jonathan Galkin, manager and cofounder of DFA Records; Ronen Givony, founder of Wordless Music and music director for Le Poisson Rouge; and Brandon Stosuy, senior writer for Stereogum and contributing editor for The Believer. Seva Granik, independent curator, supported the curatorial committee as stage and bookings manager. The Warm Up curatorial committee includes the support of Eliza Ryan as external advisor.

Generous funding for Warm Up 2010 is provided by agnès b. and by The Junior Associates of The Museum of Modern Art.
