Hi guys and gals. In this awesome class, we’re gonna learn about the wonderful world of memes. Isn’t that exciting?!! I’m so excited, I could just burst!
Before we continue guys and gals, we should learn the definition of a meme. You can find the meme definition here.
Now, let’s move on to some more fun stuff about memes. Buckle your seat belt. This train ride might get a little bumpy! 😃
So, the question is, are memes considered art? 😳
To me, the answer is yes. They may not fit into the category of classic art, but if memes are a creative expression intended to invoke a feeling, emotion or provoke thought, then the answer is yes, memes are art. To see what others say, click on the links here and here too.😃
Art is forever evolving. It’s a form of expression, a form of communication, always changing with the times. No matter what the goal of that art is, whether to convey a cultural, spiritual or political message like the hieroglyphics & paintings of the ancient Africans of the Nile Valley shown below…
…or the stylistic art of the aerosol artists (graffiti) of the 70’s and 80’s in NYC show below…see more about graffiti art here and how it became popularized and essential in early Hip-Hop. 😃👍🏿
…memes are just one form of art’s changing expression…and change is good. Change will always happen. And it’s better to embrace it than to fight it. As technology changes, surely will memes and other forms of art and communication.
