A preview party at Dallas Contemporary gave VIPs a sneak peek at what's coming up for auction at the MTV RE:DEFINE fundraising gala. The highly anticipated event showcases a mix of works from established and emerging artists curated by The Future Tense and Peter Doroshenko in collaboration with the Goss-Michael Foundation.

Co-chairs Kenny Goss and Joyce Goss welcomed attendees — including Sam Saladino, Ken Downing, Muffin Lemak, Christen and Derek Wilson, Sue and Jim Gragg, and Alex Israel — who shared some drinks and a few stories as they perused pieces by artists such as Jason Willaford, Nathan Mabry, James Lumsden, Nicholas Lobo, Neil Raitt, Casey Reas and more.

MTV RE:DEFINE, set for April 4, benefits the MTV Staying Alive Foundation and Dallas Contemporary. Returning to Dallas for a third year, this year's party boasts a rock 'n' roll theme curated by Richard Phillips and special guest Jerry Hall. Tickets can be purchased online.
