MTV Staying Alive Foundation, in partnership with Dallas Contemporary and The Goss-Michael Foundation, is pleased to announce the seventh annual MTV RE:DEFINE benefit, presented by NorthPark Center to take place on Friday, April 13, 2018 in their CenterPark Garden.
The evening, featuring an exclusive musical performance and live auction led by Simon de Pury, will be hosted by Joyce Goss and Kenny Goss, and chaired by Maxine Trowbridge and Brooke Davenport to benefit the MTV Staying Alive Foundation and Dallas Contemporary. Often considered one of the most significant British contemporary artists, Tracey Emin is this year’s artist honoree. She is best known for her autobiographical and confessional works that span a variety of media including painting, drawing, video, photography, sculpture, neon text and sewn appliqué.
Since 2011, MTV RE:DEFINE has been recognized as a premiere exhibition and auction in Dallas, TX, raising over $10 million for HIV prevention through MTV Staying Alive, and the Dallas arts community through Dallas Contemporary. This has been made possible thanks to contributions from many of the world’s leading artists including Marc Quinn, Michael Craig Martin, Tracey Emin, Sarah Lucas, Nate Lowman, Sterling Ruby, Enoc Perez, and Damien Hirst, among others.
This year’s event marks the 20th anniversary of MTV Staying Alive Foundation and the 40th anniversary of Dallas Contemporary. The exhibition will feature over 50 works, including pieces from some of the world’s foremost contemporary artists: Tracey Emin, Richard Phillips, Francesco Clemente, and Enoc Perez, amongst others. Selected works will be on view to the public at NorthPark Center the week before the benefit. Peter Doroshenko, Executive Director of Dallas Contemporary, remarked: “MTV RE:DEFINE is always the best extravaganza for great food, the best contemporary art, and iconic rock n’ roll - it’s a Dallas event like no other. Tracey Emin will push the limits of cool Britannia and the event's electric vibe.”
“The Dallas community has been such a huge supporter of MTV RE:DEFINE over the years, and we’re thrilled to bring MTV RE:DEFINE back to Dallas again as part of MTV Staying Alive’s 20th anniversary celebrations,” said Georgia Arnold, Executive Director, MTV Staying Alive Foundation.
“For the past four years, NorthPark Center has been honored to support the MTV Staying Alive Foundation, Dallas Contemporary and The Goss-Michael Foundation through MTV RE:DEFINE. We are thrilled to extend our involvement this year by hosting this premier art auction at NorthPark Center in our CenterPark Garden. It is certain to be an incredible evening, featuring the fabulous work of Tracey Emin and raising much-needed funds for HIV prevention and arts education,” said Nancy A. Nasher, Co-owner of NorthPark Center with her husband David Haemisseger.
