HomoCats: Fight the Power

February 08, 2014 - March 15, 2014


Transformer presents NYC-based artist J. Morrison’s HomoCats: Fight the Power, a large-scale installation exploring both the abundance of cat culture on the Internet and the intersection of art & activism. Morrison’s drawings, prints, and related multiples utilize the popularity of the feline as a vehicle to address socio-political concerns. Humorous and playful, the HomoCats’ banners and slogans brazenly counteract phobias and debunk cultural stereotypes, propose equal rights, examine global health concerns, and challenge social norms.
