The Framers Gallery in London is currently hosting Teh Exhibishun, an exhibition of lolcat art. Special guest is Kate Miltner, author of SRSLY PHENOMENAL: AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE APPEAL OF LOLCATS [MA dissertation, pdf available on her website]. Admission is free, but 50% of all proceeds collected will go to Battersea Home for Dogs and Cats. The BBC is there (with video) to speak with curator Jenny Theolin, some of the artists, and Miltner.

Aw, the link says it was hosted until February 15th! Why couldn't this have gone on until September so I could go AND give monies to doggies and kitties?

Oh darn. I didn't realize the date had passed! My apologies to Londoners like Kitteh who would have liked to go.

I'm not a Londoner; merely an occasional visitor to the city because of family!

The Internet finished what Dada started: it has killed art and meaning.

I hate this so much.

And suddenly it's one of the worst parts of 2007's pop culture being paraded around as art. I'm squirming in my seat in anticipation of Chuck Norris Facts: The Novel topping the bestseller lists later this year.

Wait, are people actually upset over this? Why? God, I'll never, truly, understand snob culture. Why can't this be art? Why is what you say is art, art? Who are you, over them? More importantly: what's the big fucking deal?

Snobbishness is pretending art can be any old bullshit that doesn't even attempt to impart meaning or include beauty. This has been going on for the entire 20th century.

God these stupid fake "artists" and their stupid, pretentious methods to solicit donations for an animal shelter and make people happy.

God I hate them SO MUCH!

This misunderstands Dada, the internet, and art.
