This year’s MTV RE:DEFINE will also honor Michael Craig-Martin – the godfather of British conceptual art. Coinciding with RE:DEFINE, Craig-Martin will launch his new memoir/instructional guide On Being An Artist at this year’s Dallas Art Fair (April 9-10). In addition, The Goss-Michael Foundation will work with Craig-Martin and Gagosian Gallery to present 10 works of art in public spaces in Dallas from the beginning of April through May 2015.
The evening will also feature artists Dan Colen and Nate Lowman as music curators, alongside a special performance by Lizzie Bougatsos & Sadie Laska of I.U.D. Check out some of the artworks featured in the auction below:
