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.

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.
