About

MTV’s Art Breaks, curated by MoMA PS1 and Creative Time, is a video series featuring ascendant visual artists. The program updates MTV’s legacy of working with vanguard visionaries like Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring and Doug Aitken. The first five videos in the new series come from Mickalene Thomas, Rashaad Newsome, Tala Madani, Mads Lynnerup and Jani Ruscica. Our most recent artists include Guido van der Werve, Andrew Kuo, Cody Critcheloe, Divya Mehra and Sema Bekirovic.
