    The PS1 “Warm Up” series does the fine arts a favor by connecting the contemporary art displayed in the institution to popular music.  Efforts to make “art” less rarified and more accessible to the general public are good.

    On the other hand, the fact that the “booking agents” are dubbed “curators” and the performer line-up is referred to as “an ‘experimental music’ program” suggests that some folks at PS1 want to rarify the summer music festival….which is a mistake.

    Throw a party PS1…and call it one.  It’s better for the art (even if I hate music festivals and crowds, so have never attended a “Warm Up”).
