MoMA PS1’s pioneering outdoor music series Warm Up is one of the longest running music programs housed within a museum. As an integral part of MoMA PS1’s curatorial program for more than 20 years, Warm Up seeks to elevate innovative and underrepresented voices: emerging and established, local and global, and across genres.
Warm Up 2013 is sponsored in part by The Junior Associates of The Museum of Modern Art. Special thanks to Union Beer Distributors / Great Brewers and Ace Hotel New York.
Selected by MoMA PS1 Director Klaus Biesenbach and organized by MoMA PS1 Assistant Curator Eliza Ryan, the Warm Up 2013 committee includes: Dean Bein, Head of True Panther Sounds; Kris Chen, Head of XL Recordings; Jonathan Galkin, Co-Founder of DFA Records; Brandon Stosuy, Editor for Pitchfork; Matt Werth, Head of RVNG Intl; and Imogene Strauss, as MoMA PS1 Bookings and Stage Manager.
In addition, Warm Up will draw from local New York design talent, featuring rotating stage installations by CONFETTISYSTEM, Fort Makers, Fort Standard, The Principals, and Thunder Horse Video, organized by Jocelyn Miller, MoMA PS1 curatorial assistant.
