Limited edition poster by artist Cem A., known for running the meme account @freeze_magazine on Instagram. Cem A's memes explore issues of survival and alienation in the art world through a humorous and ironic lens. Cem A. designed fictional Louisiana exhibition posters that - temporarily - replaced existing posters in the Louisiana Café. Through this approach, Cem A. adapted his internet memes to Louisiana's visual aesthetic.
The poster is part of a series called Theory is My Friend, which Cem A. was invited to design and exhibit at Louisiana in February 2023, in connection with the conference "The Politics and Poetics of Exhibiting".
The poster becomes a site-specific intervention that reflects on the role of memes, both as an art form and institutional critique. The posters invite visitors to think about the power that art institutions have to shape our shared understanding of art history.
Shared via social media, a meme is a composition consisting of an image or video combined with text, often written in satirical or provocative language.
