Over its 20 seasons, Warm Up has featured more than 750 artists, including pop artists Solange, Jamie XX and Grimes, experimental musicians Arca, Black Dice and Four Tet, and legendary DJs like DJ Premier, Richie Hawtin, and Derrick May.

One of the longest-running music programs within a museum, Warm Up has a history of supporting seminal artists before they come to prominence and providing a platform for experimentation, unique collaborations, and new material. An integral part of MoMA PS1’s contemporary program, Warm Up provides an opportunity for audiences to engage with today’s most experimental and innovative artists across media.

Warm Up takes place within a site-specific installation by the winners of the annual Young Architects Program and striking stage environments by cutting-edge designers that complement each week’s program. For summer 2017, MoMA PS1’s courtyard will feature an immersive installation by the Jenny Sabin Studio made of photoluminescent textiles that transform over the course of a day. Audiences are encouraged to visit the exhibition galleries and experience MoMA PS1’s diverse program of emerging artists, new genres, and adventurous work by recognized artists.

Warm Up 2017 is organized by a dynamic curatorial committee led by Eliza Ryan and Imogene Strauss, featuring new members Mattis With (Young Turks), Venus X (GHE20G0TH1K), and Naomi Zeichner (YouTube), alongside returning curators Dean Bein (True Panther Sounds) and Matt Werth (RVNG Intl.), with Taja Cheek, Curatorial Assistant, MoMA PS1 and Rosey Selig-Addiss, Associate Producer, MoMA PS1.

MoMA PS1 is one of the largest and oldest organizations in the United States devoted to contemporary art. Established in 1976 by Alanna Heiss, MoMA PS1 originated from The Institute for Art and Urban Resources, a not-for-profit organization founded five years prior with the mission of turning abandoned, underutilized buildings in New York City into artist studios and exhibition spaces. P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, as it then was known, became an affiliate of The Museum of Modern Art in 2000.

MoMA PS1 is located at 22-25 Jackson Avenue at 46th Ave in Long Island City. Traveling by subway, take either the E or M to Court Square-23 Street; the 7 to 45 Road-Courthouse Square; or the G to Court Sq or 21 St- Van Alst. By bus, take the Q67 to Jackson and 46th Ave or the B62 to 46th Ave.
