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.

Produced by P.S.1 Director of Operations and Exhibitions Antoine Guerrero and curated by Jason “DJ Spun” Drummond (Rong Music) and Zach Layton (Issue Project Room), Warm Up 2009 will offer a wide-scale program of bands, DJs, and musical experimenters who will take the stage for ten Saturdays over the summer.

Generous funding for Warm Up 2009 is provided by agnès b. and by The Junior Associates of The Museum of Modern Art. Special thanks to Union Beer and Jay Benach.

Additional support is provided by the Bertha and Isaac Liberman Foundation, Jeffrey and Michèle Klein, Agnes Gund, The Contemporary Arts Council of The Museum of Modern Art, and Con Edison.
