NY Summer Concerts at MoMA PS1

By

MoMA PS1’s acclaimed summer concert series Warm Up is underway.

MoMA PS1, the exhibition space devoted to “the most experimental art in the world,” is host to this annual event—a fusion of music and art like no other in the city. And in the spirit of artful experimentation, coinciding with this year’s Warm Up is the installation “Pole Dance” by the firm SO – IL, winners of the annual Young Architects Program. After the jump, see the full unbelievable line-up of this summer’s musical events.
