About the Project

MTV Music Television, MoMA PS1, and Creative Time collaborated on Art Breaks, a series of ten original video art pieces by some of the most groundbreaking artists working today. The videos, which were curated by MoMA PS1 and Creative Time, screened on-air on MTV Networks and will continue online at MTV.com, bringing experimental artwork directly to MTV’s global audience. The videos in the series include works by Sema Bekirovic, Cody Critcheloe, Andrew Kuo, Mads Lynnerup, Tala Madani, Divya Mehra, Rashaad Newsome, Jani Ruscica, Mickalene Thomas, and Guido van der Werve.


Art Breaks builds on MTV’s rich legacy of introducing its audience to vanguard video art, including early work from Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Spike Jonze, Kenny Scharf and Doug Aitken, as well as Andy Warhol’s 15 Minutes.
