MoMA PS1 ANNOUNCES LINE-UP FOR WARM UP 2012

Annual Outdoor Music Series Runs Every Saturday from July 7–September 8 (Long Island City, NY-May 30, 2012) MoMA PS1 presents Warm Up 2012, beginning July 7 and taking place every Saturday this summer through September 8. Now celebrating its 15th year, the museum's highly anticipated outdoor series will continue its tradition of introducing audiences to the best in experimental live music, sound, performance, and DJs. The annual series is held in MoMA PS1's courtyard, which this year will feature a temporary urban landscape by HWKN called Wendy, the winning design of MoMA PS1's 13th annual Young Architects Program. M. Wells will be cooking in the courtyard all summer long. This year's Warm Up marks the third year the series will be conceived by a curatorial committee hand selected by the museum to represent a wide spectrum of expertise and experiences in music, sound, and the performing arts, resulting in a unique summer sound that explores, interprets, and combines genres. Selected by MoMA PS1 director Klaus Biesenbach and organized by MoMA PS1 curatorial assistant Eliza Ryan, the Warm Up 2012 committee includes Dean Bein, head of True Panther Sounds; Kris Chen, head of XL Recordings; Robin Carolan, head of Tri Angle Records; Jonathan Galkin, co-founder of DFA Records; Brandon Stosuy, editor for Pitchfork; Matt Werth, label head of RVNG Intl; and Imogene Strauss, as 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, Rich Brilliant Willing, and Thunder Horse Video, organized by Jocelyn Miller, MoMA PS1 curatorial assistant. For the first time, MoMA PS1 will offer advanced tickets for each Saturday and tickets will go on sale June 18th at www.momaps1.org/warmup.
