I Can Has Gallery Showz?
From funny-captioned cat photos to a bona fide art show, the LOLcat meme is moving from the web to the gallery.
The first-ever LOL Art Show will be held in San Francisco on Thursday, October 23rd.
If you still need to get up to meme-speed on this one, here’s a little background reading: a quick history of LOLcats and I Can Has Cheezburger?
I Can Has Cheezburger? along with curator Marianne Goldin are organizing a LOL Art Show which takes place this Thursday, October 23rd at Varnish Fine Art in San Francisco. The art show and silent auction is a benefit for Partners in Reading which helps with adult literacy. Advance tickets for the LOL Art Show are now on sale.
This show is comprised of artists from around the world: professionals, students, and lovers of art. There are painters, draughtspeople, comic artists, sculptors, glass artists, media artists, musicians and conceptual artists. All these individuals responded to an open call for a very new kind of art show. Their work creates a visual vocabulary required for the concept of LOLcat art to exist.
