Exhibitions: MTV's "RE:DEFINE"
Several of the world’s top contemporary artists took place in MTV’s “RE:DEFINE” free exhibition, which opened Sept. 14 in the new Goss-Michael Foundation facility in central Dallas, chaired by Jessica Olsson and Anna-Sophia Van Zweden
On Sept. 22, the pieces were auctioned off, with 100% of the proceeds going to the Staying Alive Foundation, a grassroots HIV and AIDS charity.
“Our primary aim with RE:DEFINE is always to present a vital mix of both established and emerging artists, spanning as many disciplines as possible. We also attempt to embrace a modern, artistic interpretation of the infamous ‘MTV generation’ moniker throughout the event. Within that broad structure we look to encompass one or two main themes. In 2011 we successfully combined pop imagery with icons – from Shepard Fairey’s take on the American flag to Russell Young’s shimmering diamond dust Bardot.”
This is the second year of the annual exhibition has been put on by the MTV Staying Alive Foundation, who’s efforts last year raised over $7,000
