Over 300 of the world's foremost contemporary artists have contributed to MTV RE:DEFINE - without this generous support we simply wouldn't exist, and for that we are extremely grateful.
WHY MTV RE:DEFINE?
MTV RE:DEFINE is one of the largest and most high-profile charity auctions in the US, and has a stellar track record of selling work at above market value to notable collectors. Work is exhibited in architecturally stunning Museum quality space and is on show to the general public ahead of the main event taking place. All work is published in a high-quality printed catalog, and promoted online via our auction partner.
MTV RE:DEFINE differentiates itself by producing artist content, including studio visits, short films, and interviews, and satellite events around art fairs in major cities. Most importantly, sales of work benefit two incredible philanthropic endeavors - Dallas Contemporary and MTV Staying Alive Foundation.
We understand that artists receive countless asks for works, and we appreciate all consideration given to MTV RE:DEFINE.
