MoMA PS1 again joins forces with Other Music to present the second annual music festival and label market, featuring a label fair, live performances, workshops, and panels that celebrate the interactive ecosystem of local and international music communities. This season’s event will include more than 60 record labels, expanded live programming, and extended hours. Reasserting the central and essential role that communities play in both the creation and consumption of new sounds, Come Together recasts the fading record store experience for the current moment.
Honoring the recent passing of DIY punk icon Fred Cole, lead singer and guitarist of the band Dead Moon, the festival will feature a release event for Dead Moon: The Book with Toody Cole and Mississippi Records founder and editor Eric Isaacson, including rare ephemera and archival materials. Azikiwe Mohammed also continues his performative installation of a fictional thrift store, Jimmy’s Thrift of New Davonhaime, which will include a music library that visitors can contribute to and take from throughout the course of the day.

MoMA PS1’s acclaimed VW Sunday Sessions program welcomes visitors to experience art live and in real time. Embracing performance, music, dance, conversations, and film, the program vividly demonstrates how these art forms can push us to engage with our contemporary world in creative, illuminating ways. With an emphasis on artistic practices that blur and break traditional genre boundaries, the program supports and commissions new work, inviting artists, curators, and other cultural instigators to share their latest projects.
