Fri 9.13 ArtshareLA pussycatchallenge“The PussyCat Challenge” is a satirical group exhibition at Art Share L.A. Curators Ted Meyer and Anna Stump invited more than 50 artists from Southern California to create artworks based on the theme of the pussycat, in a range of media from painting to photography to sculpture.

The artists have been divided into two teams, men vs. women. The curators chose the theme of “pussycat” to see how individual artists would respond conceptually, and how teams overall would tend (sexual or animal).

A panel of judges will score each artwork based on their own criteria. Prizes will be awarded to the winning team and individual artworks, including “Best in Show,” “Thickest Fur,” and “Fattest Cat.” Judges will include a veterinarian, a cat rescuer, a gynecologist, a sexologist, and various “Artworld Dignitaries.” All judging sheets will be made public. Viewers of the exhibition will also be invited to fill out their own scorecards.
