Wired: At MOMA, Cat Instagram Has Finally Clawed Its Way Into The Art World

Wired: At MOMA, Cat Instagram Has Finally Clawed Its Way Into The Art World . “Stephen Shore was an Instagram artist way before there was Insta­gram. He shot to prominence in the ’70s with carefully composed snapshots of parking lots, pancake breakfasts, and camping trips, beautiful banalities that future Instagrammers would try to emulate. Now that Shore is actually on the platform, he averages a post a day—and a retrospective of his work, opening at New York’s Museum of Modern Art in November, shows off three years’ worth of his ’grams. Including (obviously) a portrait of his beloved Himalayan cat, Oscar.”

  1. Interesting, I have always denigrated Instagram as a source of art, rather than a social network site – the photos are simply too small and low-fi. I’m beginning to think I’m wrong – which won’t be the first, or last, time.

    Thanks for sharing.
