What's the Meme-ing of this?

Meme's are present in everyday life from expressing our frustrations at work, to becoming part of political discourse and corporate marketing.
'What's the Meme-ing of this?!' is an exhibition curated by Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre Youth that draws from a counter-culture created by millennials and a territory often foreign to professionals. The exhibition presents an array of works created by young people expressing how youth consume and interact with media, questioning what media is for young people, as well as how they are represented within it. It further shows how Memes can use humour, play and divergent thinking as vehicles to push agendas that resonate with young audiences.

As Assistant Curator and Designer I had the opportunity of shaping this exhibition by helping source artists and artworks whilst working with a team to develop an accompanying publication filled with written and visual pieces that explore the exhibitions' key satirical themes.
