Not to be missed under any circumstances: LOLCAT TEH EXHIBISHUN!
Head over to the Framers Gallery in London for a unique and creative take on the LOLCat phenomenon by a variety of graphic designers, illustrators, photographers, animators and writers (find out more about the artists).
Here’s a (not entirely serious) news item on the show:
but rest assured, the exhibition is seriously taking place now!
Read an interview with curator of the LOLCat exhibition Jenny Theolin here, who explains that cats picked her rather than vice versa!
Funnily enough, I have never been a cat person, but, just as the LOLCAT phenomenon started as a bit of a joke, so did the LOLCAT exhibition. Who knew how much people adore this internet meme? The social and psychological side of this is what truly interests me, and I couldn’t believe it hadn’t been done before!
The show runs until February 15 2013, entry is free, and half of the sales proceeds will go to the Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, all the more reason to go. Oh, and if you do, tweet about it under #LOLCATEXHIBISHUN!
