A world premier art exhibition, auction, and gala is what’s in store at the seventh annual MTV RE:DEFINE, honoring British artist Tracey Emin. Founded by the MTV Staying Alive Foundation and the Michael-Goss Foundation, MTV: RE DEFINE, in partnership with the Dallas Contemporary, has raised over $10 million toward fighting HIV since its start in 2011.

But this year, there’s a little something extra to cheers to. Presented by NorthPark Center, hosted by Joyce Goss and Kenny Goss, and chaired by Brooke Davenport and Maxine Trowbridge, the April 13 gala celebrates the 20th anniversary of MTV Staying Alive Foundation and the 40th anniversary of Dallas Contemporary. Over 50 works by influential contemporary artists, including Richard Phillips and Francesco Clemente, will round out the exhibition. With the live auction led by Simon De Pury, all proceeds will go to the foundation for fighting and preventing HIV. Contact Hannah Fagadau for availability,, April 13, 6:30-11:30 PM, CenterPark Garden at NorthPark Center, 8687 N. Central Expressway
