Our friends at MoMA PS1 just announced their summer lineup for the annual Warm Up music series out in Long Island City, taking place every Saturday between July 4 and Labor Day. We’re lending a hand by acting as a homebase to some of their visiting performers from far-flung corners of the earth, and we’ll be giving away a handful of tickets to Warm Up events each week to blog readers so stay tuned here for updates on how to get yours. Find the lineup below — get here by plane, train, automobile, unicycle, skateboard or magic carpet. And keep an eye out for this year’s hard-to-miss YAP installation by Interboro Partners + WHATAMI by stARTT.
Cult filmmaker Chris Cunningham has spent the last decade studying music, making audio visual remixes, and making films people like to obsess about. On September 26, our friends at MoMA PopRally will produce the premiere of Chris’ latest project, “New York is Killing Me,” displayed as it was intended to be — on three simultaneous screens in the museum lobby. The event includes cocktails in the sculpture garden and a conversation between Chris, Richard Russell and MoMA curator Barbara London. Go check it out, it’s going to be epic.
