Preview: “Cat Art Show Los Angeles” at 101/exhibit

Thanks to Owlbert the Mustachioed Cat and other viral cat videos, furry felines have become hipster chic. 101/exhibit in LA celebrates the feline form in a new exhibition, "Cat Art Show Los Angeles," opening January 25 at the gallery's new location on Santa Monica Blvd. In this large-scale group show of more than 60 artists, viewers will see photographed portraits of white tigers by Charlotte Dumas and Marc Dennis’s monumental painting of a gold-framed portrait of a wide-eyed cat, revered and protected by a security guard who bears a striking resemblance to Snoop Dogg. Curated by journalist, art consultant and cat owner Susan Michals, "Cat Art Show Los Angeles" pays homage, through both humor and pensiveness, to the mysterious world of cats.

Highlights of the exhibition include Shepard Fairey’s “Radical Cat” piece, a bad ass cat dressed in leather jacket and skull-and-crossbones t-shirt; Gary Baseman’s (featured in our latest issue, HF Vol. 30) creepy, cuddly cats with yellow eyes and vampire teeth; and Tracey Emin’s photographic portrait with her beloved cat, Docket. Displayed together, the variety of styles and perspectives will offer an amusing and thoughtful journey through the lives and psychology of our furry friends.
