Walker Art Center's Internet Cat Video Fest heads to SXSW
Last summer, over 10,000 people camped out on the Walker Art Center's hilly lawn for the Cat Video Fest (#catvidfest), an outdoor screening of the best cat videos the internet had to offer. When it came to curating the show, the museum staff were overwhelmed with the sheer quantity of submissions, and staffers were delighted (and shocked) when folks -- plus a few celebrity cats -- flew in from around the world to attend the event.
At this year's SXSW, folks from the Walker will be in town to talk about what the hell happened, and what this means for modern art.
They will also be screening cat videos, of course.
