Martin Scorsese Presents Republic
Rediscovered: New Restorations
From Paramount Pictures, Part 2
The Museum of Modern Art

Through September 2, 2018

Continuing our celebration of the Republic Pictures library, which is currently being restored and returned to wide distribution by Paramount, here are 16 more rarely seen titles, each handpicked by Martin Scorsese.

“From the ’30s through the ’50s, the different studio logos at the head of every picture carried their own associations and expectations,” said Scorsese. “And for me, the name Republic over the eagle on the mountain peak meant something special. Republic Pictures was what was known as a ‘poverty row’ studio, but what their pictures lacked in resources and prestige they made up for in inventiveness, surprise, and, in certain cases, true innovation. Among the many ‘B’ pictures produced at Republic in the studio’s heyday, there are so many titles that have been overlooked or forgotten; waiting for decades to be seen again. I’m truly excited that MoMA will be presenting these films, some in newly restored versions courtesy of Paramount Pictures and The Film Foundation. For two weeks in August, you need to go to MoMA. I can promise you that you have some discoveries in store.”
The program opens with a rare Republic A-picture, Edward Ludwig’s dreamlike South Seas romance Wake of the Red Witch (1948), with John Wayne and Gail Russell, and includes Republic’s 1953 Trucolor follow-up, Fair Wind to Java (Joseph Kane, 1953)—a Scorsese favorite starring Fred McMurray and Vera Ralston, in a 35mm restoration from The Film Foundation. Other filmmakers to be highlighted include John H. Auer (I, Jane Doe, 1948), William A. Seiter (Make Haste to Live, 1954), William Witney (The Outcast, 1954), Bernard Vorhaus (Three Faces West, 1940), Anthony Mann (Strangers in the Night, 1944), Herbert Wilcox (Laughing Anne, 1953), Allan Dwan (Surrender, 1950), and Frank Borzage (Moonrise, 1948).

With six dates remaining in the Warm Up season, MoMA PS1 announces new additions to the lineup of more than 75 artists.

This Saturday, July 28, Tomasa del Real and Siobhan Bell join the lineup alongside Just Blaze, Tony Humphries, SOB x RBE, JPEGMAFIA, Mndsgn, and Omar Apollo. Also added: Standing on the Corner and Molly on August 11 and Epic B b2b Uninamise and Skinny on August 25.

The current lineup follows below, with additional artists to be announced.

Advance tickets are available for all dates. To provide access to Warm Up for young local audiences, in 2018 the first 100 New York City high school students at each Warm Up will receive free admission.

Now in its 21st season, Warm Up is one of the longest running music programs housed within a museum. As an integral part of MoMA PS1’s curatorial program, Warm Up seeks to elevate innovative and underrepresented voices and connect fans with music’s most important artists. The program’s alumni include contemporary creators Four Tet, Solange, Black Dice, Cardi B, Jamie XX, and Laurel Halo, as well as legendary DJs including Ritchie Hawtin, DJ Premier, and Total Freedom.

Each year, Warm Up takes place within a site-specific installation by the winners of the annual Young Architects Program. For summer 2018, MoMA PS1’s courtyard has been transformed by Dream The Combine, a Minneapolis-based team whose design features large-scale mirrors that create unexpected visual connections. Warm Up attendees are encouraged to visit the museum galleries and experience MoMA PS1’s acclaimed exhibitions of emerging artists, new genres, and adventurous work by recognized artists. Select museum galleries are open until 8:00pm, offering attendees the opportunity to experience exhibitions and long-term installations including Reza Abdoh, Projects 108: Gauri Gill, Land: Zhang Huan and Li Binyuan, and Julia Phillips: Failure Detection as well as James Turrell’s iconic Skyspace Meeting.

In celebration of the 21st season of Warm Up, MoMA PS1 has created a capsule collection of custom merchandise. Bringing together voices from a range of art and music communities, the collection is designed to commemorate Warm Up 2018, and celebrate the network of creatives that surrounds it. The collection features three items: a beach towel designed by Come Tees, a short-sleeve T-shirt designed by Andrew Kuo, and a long-sleeve T-shirt designed by Hassan Rahim. Each was produced by EVERYBODY.WORLD, and made in the United States. The collection is available at the MoMA Design Store, Soho, online at, and on site at MoMA PS1 during Warm Up events.

Warm Up 2018 is organized by Eliza Ryan and Naomi Zeichner (YouTube) with Taja Cheek (MoMA PS1). The curatorial committee includes: Dean Bein (True Panther Sounds), Taja Cheek, Isabelia Herrera (Remezcla), Jonas Leon (Leon Institute), Eliza Ryan, Venus X (GHE20G0TH1K), Matt Werth (RVNG Intl.), and Naomi Zeichner.

This year’s Warm Up will feature rotating stage environments by young, emerging design talent, including Arch Angels, Unltd., Bodega Rose, and Maria Constanza Ferreira, Lauren Pedrosa, Paola Martinez, and Laura Casañas Maya.

Additional artists will be announced throughout the summer.
