The exhibition will focus on a number of contemporary trends and projects including cat scanning, cat breading, cat shaming and The Infinite Cat Project, a website containing over 1700 images of cats gazing at each other via computer screens. These sit alongside historical examples such as The Brighton Cats, a series of carte-de-visite photographs by Harry Pointer from the 1870s. A major part of the exhibition will be dedicated to the more recent online phenomenon of Lolcats: images of cats accompanied by amusing text which is often idiosyncratic and grammatically incorrect.
