Summertime In NYC: Time to Visit MoMA PS1

Summertime in NYC is a time of exploration. Venture across the bridge to Long Island City to visit MoMA’s sister property MoMA PS1, one of the most innovative and comprehensive institutions of contemporary art in the United States. Heralded by Fodor’s as “a pioneer in the alternative-space movement,” the museum is housed in an abandoned and revitalized Romanesque public school building. Going on it’s 13th year, summer exhibitions at MoMA PS1 are notorious.

This summer feed your scholarly needs with six new exhibitions. We suggest visiting Ian Cheng’s Emissaries, on view through September 25th. The museum recently acquired the trilogy which leads participants through a video game simulation addressing topics such as evolution, climate change, the origin of human consciousness and more. The result in an impressive inaugural solo presentation by the artist. Click  for a full list of exhibitions. 

For a less traditional but equally culturally significant experience, kick off the summer on July 1st with their summer Warm Up series. Dance side-by-side with other contemporary art and music lovers to the impressive tunes of Jackmaster, DJ EZ, Tiger & Woods, Shanti Celeste and VHVL. For a full lineup click 

MoMA PS1 is located at 22-25 Jackson Avenue, Long Island City, NY 11101, open Thursday through Monday, 12 to 6 p.m. Admission to PS1 is currently free for all NYC residents, suggested general admission for non-residents is $10.
