Are Internet Memes ART?

Are Internet Memes ART?

Let’s discuss!

First – (Screen the video above and then read the article far below.)

Second – Do an Internet search for “Are memes ART?” See what you discover. No matter how you cut it, memes are here to stay…is this good or bad for Art? Is this good or bad for communication? Are memes forms of self-expression? Well, why or why not? I want to know what you think. And by all means share your favorites existing Memes via URL, or embed them in a new blog post for this coming week.

Oh, and, you MUST create own MeMe to express your sentiments for our CT101 class! Be sure to include the words “CT101” in your meme!

Perhaps, you will say “CT101 be like…”

OR, “What if I told you that CT101….”

All of this nestles quite well into in new Blog post! (thats your assignment!)

***The CT101 Meme Project will be exhibited on the NET-ART website as a collaboration project!  Check out some of the other projects on display there now – https://netart.commons.gc.cuny.edu/galleries-exhibitions/
