Painting: Oil on Canvas.
THE PAINTING SECTION FROM DAVIS MUSEUM
The Davis Lisboa Mini-Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona
Davis Lisboa, "Galerie légitime #9", 2017, oil on canvas, 15.7 x 15.7 x 1.57 in (40 x 40 x 3.5 cm)
What/who inspired the work?
My idea was to connect three different symbols: Robert Filliou's hat, Instagram's hashtags and the word "FIG" that Marcel Broodthaers used very often in his Musée d'Art Moderne, Département des Aigles.
What do you hope its viewers will feel/think?
I hope that viewers know that there is a narrative in art history that deals with "the artists who have created their own museums". This discourse is constructed through Marcel Duchamp (Boîte-en-valise, 1936-1941), Robert Filliou (Galerie Légitime, ca. 1962-1963) and Marcel Broodthaers (Musée d'Art Moderne, Départment des Aigles, 1968-1972). To follow this line I founded The Davis Museum (www.davismuseum.com), the first and only museum of contemporary art created in a ballot box through Facebook in 2009-ongoing. This cultural entity was recognized by the Government of Catalonia (Spain) has several sections and one of them is "The Paintings Section From Davis Museum ". This wing is divided into portraits and still lifes. The portraits are about Marcel Duchamp, Robert Filliou and Marcel Broodthaers; while still lifes are about the Boîte-en-valise (Box in a suitacase), the Galerie légitime (Legitimate gallery) and the Musée d'Art Moderne, Départment des Aigles (Museum of Modern Art, Department of Eagles).
Why did you choose the medium, the frame format and color?
I chose oil on canvas because I am interested in painting not only because of its versatility as a medium but also because of its rich historical repository of images and ideas. Only the best materials have been used: linen fabrics, Blockx essence of turpentine and linseed oil and Old Holland oil paintings. As the Davis Museum is a cube, I chose the frame of the paintings to be square. And since the Davis Museum's brand color is blue and white, I chose to have the same color in the paintings.
This is the only section of the Davis Museum where works of art are on sale. Support this project by buying now this painting on Saatchi Art.
