MoMA PS1 presents Warm Up 2013, beginning June 29 and taking place every Saturday this summer through September 7. Now celebrating its 16th year, the museum's highly anticipated outdoor music series will continue its tradition of introducing audiences to the best in experimental live music, sound, and DJs—both local and international—across a range of genres. Warm Up supports both established and emerging artists by creating a platform that allows for experimentation and provides a space for collaboration, new material, and side-projects. The annual series is held in MoMA PS1's courtyard, which this year will feature a temporary urban landscape by CODA called Party Wall, the winning design of the 14th annual Young Architects Program.
This year, Warm Up will be once again conceived by a curatorial committee, selected by the museum to represent a wide spectrum of expertise in music, sound, and the performing arts.
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.
