Jeffrey Keyton, MTV's Head of On- and Off-Air Design, who has steered the channel's trailblazing visual course for over 20 years, guides us through his top moments.

Ed Bartlett’s Recommendations
Founder, The Future Tense, and RE:DEFINE Auction Curator

“With over 90 artists participating in RE:DEFINE this year, it seems almost unfair to highlight just a few. However if I was forced to choose, and buying for my own collection, these are some of the works I would pick.”
