This MTV-sponsored event gives back
We love a good benefit, but let’s face it: They’re not usually the most inclusive of endeavors.
But thanks to MTV and The Goss-Michael Foundation--and the success of their first collaboration last year--virtually anyone can enjoy viewing an engaging art show starting September 14 in Dallas.
The art exhibition and auction RE:DEFINE is presented by the video music channel’s Staying Alive Foundation, an HIV/AIDS grant-giving charity. Sponsors include The Joule hotel, Neiman Marcus and Phillips de Pury & Company.
The exhibition to be mounted at Goss-Michael is once again curated by The Future Tense; among the confirmed artists are Michael Craig-Martin, Ryan McGinness, Tomokazu Matsuyama and Jen Stark. Curator tours and artist talks will complement the show, as will a public art installation by emerging British artist Lee Baker.
RE:DEFINE’s auction portion will take place September 22. Last year, the event raised more than $700,000 for the Staying Alive Foundation.
With a slew of amazing art, not to mention generous patrons, this year’s entry is sure to be the very definition of success.
