News__ MoMA PS1 Warm Up 2011
MoMA PS1 is turning it up in Long Island City all summer long
It's already hot in New York, but things are about to warm up a little more. The MoMA PS1 Warm Up 2011 kicks off this weekend, and will take place every Saturday until until September 3. The array of experimental live music, sound, performance, and DJs will featured artists including Omar-S, DJ Pierre, Sun Araw, Black Dice, Four Tet, Tanlines, Grimes, Syd Tha Kyd / OFWGKTA, His name is alive, and Nguzunguzu.
Though MoMA is celebrating it's 14th year of the outdoor concert series, this will be the second year the line up was selected by a curatorial team organized by MoMA PS1 director Klaus Biesenbach. Dean Bein, head of True Panther Sounds, Kris Chen, head of A & R at XL Recordings, Robin Carolan, head of Tri Angle Records, Jonathan Galkin, co-founder of DFA Records, Brandon Stosuy, senior writer for Stereogum and contributing editor for The Believer, and Matt Werth, label head of RVNG Intl, all had a say in the various bands and artists that will be taking the stage in in MoMA PS1's courtyard.
As far as the decor, throughout the summer, installations by CONFETTISYSTEM, Fort Makers, Nightwood, and Thunder Horse Video, will accentuate the stage.
There's lots to see and hear all summer long, so check here for the full MoMA PS1 Warmup 2011 schedule.
