Fort Makers at MoMA PS1

Tuesday, 5 July 2011

HBL favorite from ICFF, Fort Makers, has designed the stage for MoMA PS1's Warm Up 2011, a summer outdoor series of experimental live music that premiered this weekend and continues to run throughout August.

The Brooklyn-based collective of designers and artists collaborate to create projects that range from fashion to furniture to artwork. Fort Makers' latest project at PS1 in Long Island City, Queens, is a primal flurry of paint, fabric and reflects the Midwest American inspiration that can be found in much of their work.

This year's Warm Up marks the second 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. The annual series is held in MoMA PS1's courtyard, which this year features Holding Pattern by Interboro Partners, an immersive environment that is the winning design of MoMA PS1's 12th annual Young Architects Program.
