A museum has set up an exhibition devoted to famous online cats.

The Museum of the Moving Image in New York will host an exhibition called 'How Cats Took Over the Internet' from August 7 to January 31, taking "a critical look at a deceptively frivolous phenomenon".

As well as images of felines who have found viral fame online, there will be a constant loop of "significant cat videos" in a special Video Screening Amphitheatre.

The exhibition also promises to touch on "anthropomorphism, the aesthetics of cuteness, the Bored at Work Network, and the rise of user-generated content".
