On July 12, PopRally heads to Queens for a festive, genre-bending evening at Trans-Pecos in Ridgewood! Crossroads at Trans-Pecos will feature a participatory performance by ray ferreira and Miatta Kawinzi, live music by the Indo-Latin funk jam band Salsa Masala, a DJ set by DJ Marty McSorley, and a pop-up with treats from Queens Night Market vendors Primos Variedades and Bengali Street Eats.

Recognized as "the world’s borough," Queens embodies the diversity and vibrancy that makes New York so special. Corona-born artist ray ferreira and collaborator Miatta Kawinzi reflect on linguistic diversity through audiovisual projections, inflection, and movement. Inspired by the bustling streets and sounds of Roosevelt Avenue in Jackson Heights, Salsa Masala will have you grooving with their hybrid blend of bachata, cumbia, bhangra, and dandiya. Queens-based DJ Marty McSorley will close out the night with an all-vinyl set.

Doors open at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $10 and include the performance, live music, a DJ set, a cash bar, and food available for purchase by Queens Night Market.

Stay tuned for more about our next event, in Staten Island!

PopRally is a series of events at The Museum of Modern Art and MoMA PS1 that serve as a gateway for young and diverse audiences to engage with MoMA. Led by a cross-departmental committee of Museum staff, PopRally produces dynamic programs including artist collaborations, performances, film screenings, and digital content that encourage new and experimental ways of encountering modern and contemporary art.

This summer, join us for MoMA PopRally × New York, a creative journey across New York City. From Staten Island to the Bronx, we’re heading to each of the five boroughs with artist collaborations, performance, music, food, film, and more. MoMA PopRally × New York kicks off in Queens and continues into the summer and fall with events in Staten Island, the Bronx, and Brooklyn. In October, the series culminates in Manhattan with MoMA’s reopening and an interactive exploration of our new home. You’ll be invited to a first look at the new MoMA, our expanded galleries, and the reimagined display of our collection—as always, PopRally style.
