MY MTV: WHERE ARE THEY NOW?

I. WANT. MY. MTV.

…the MTV that was so young it only had a stack of music videos to play, then let a staff of renegades fill in the gaps with animation, art breaks, experimental shorts and ID’s. This combination became the visual and cultural barometer for a generation.

The landscape was new and the only glowing screen in our lives was a television. MTV looked and acted like nothing we’d ever seen before. Because at MTV, people didn’t go to work, they went to play.

We invite you to join us for a night of frolic and folly, looking back at some of those who passed through that playground and where they are now.  What it was like to make art for a network that embraced creative exploration before and after our computers took over.

Now dust off those Doc Martins, put your ironic t-shirts on, and come out for a nostalgic night of what was new fueled with work and stories from those who were there, then.

A limited number of complimentary tickets are available for New School students, faculty, and staff (NSU ID required). Sign up here:
