LOLCAT Art: Internet Meme Becomes Real Life Exhibition At London Gallery

Posted: Updated:

Last November, we got crazy as a kitten on catnip over the news that an exhibition of original LOLCATS was making its way to London.

LOLCAT - TEH EXHIBISHUN, which opened at The Framer's Gallery last night, features felines specially designed by established artists like Lizzie Mary Cullen, Jimmy Turrell, Paul MacAnelly , 12Foot6 and Sneaky Raccoon.

As well as raising money for Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, which will receive 50% of the show's profits, LOLCAT - TEH EXHIBISHUN has generated a debate as to whether an internet meme is a legitimate subject for art, with even the BBC weighing in on the discussion.

So, what do you think?
