Conceptually, I was influenced by an image taken by Marcel Broodthaers of the "Musée d'Art Moderne, Département des Aigles, Section XIXème Siècle." In his Brussels house, Marcel Broodthaers operated the "Musée d'Art Moderne, Département des Aigles, Section XIXème Siècle" from September 27, 1968, to September 27, 1969. It had a ladder, empty crates, and post cards among its components. Inscriptions and logos on the crates, which were typically used to carry objects of art, emphasized the pieces' fragility. Although the crates were purportedly empty, it was unclear whether they really were. Reproductions of well-known 19th-century artworks were used for the postcards. Here, Broodthaers experimented with the work's veracity and reproducibility. From a formal standpoint, Pierre Bonnard and his "intimate" paintings of commonplace events in serene interiors have been my main sources of inspiration. I want spectators to realize that there is a narrative of artists who founded their own museums in the history of art. Marcel Duchamp (Boîte-en-valise, 1936–1941), Robert Filliou (La galerie légitime, 1962–1963), and Marcel Broodthaers (Musée d'Art Moderne, Département des Aigles, 1968–1972) all contributed to the creation of this story.

My name is Davis Lisboa (1965, São Paulo, Brazil), living and working in Barcelona, Spain. I'm a multifaceted illustrator and painter who, through my work, try to erase the boundaries between graphic arts and fine arts, high and low culture, art and the market, crafts and technology. In 2009 I created the Davis Museum | Davis Lisboa Mini-Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona. I have studied Desenho de Comunicação at the ETE Carlos de Campos and Painting at the Centre d'Art i Disseny Escola Massana and at the Facultat de Belles Arts de la Universitat de Barcelona. Since 1982 I've been working as a storyboard artist creating storyboards for various advertising agencies in Brazil, Spain, Russia, England or the United States. In 1987 I moved to Barcelona, where I worked as a graphic illustrator in a design studio and two years later, I opened my own illustration and painting studio. In 2005 I began to hold exhibitions as an artistic, figurative and contemporary painter at art galleries, cultural centers and art museums, and in 2009, I created the Davis Museum | The Davis Lisboa Mini-Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona, a cultural entity recognized by the Generalitat de Catalunya, now, expanding my activity towards cultural management. I have participated in several exhibitions, including Museum Show at Arnolfini, Bristol, England; Eleven: The John Erickson Museum of Art (JEMA) 10 Year Retrospective at The Harn Museum of Art, Gainesville, USA and at the Galería Bob Rauschenberg, Fort Myers, USA; Remix - 10 years in the mix at the en la Spor Klübü, Berlin, Germany; Small, Unusual and Specialist Museums Survey at the CRATE Studio and Project Space, Margate, England; Incubarte at Centro del Carmen, Valencia, Spain; FluxFest 2019, Pride Mail Project and Big Ideas in Small Art at The Rose Shelton Gallery, Toronto, Canada; Aquí y Ahora 6 - Power, corruption & lies at the Galería Blanca Soto, Madrid, Spain; VI Biennale Internazionale dell'Arte Contemporanea di Firenze, Italy; Holland Art Fair, The Hague; La Secció de les Pintures del Davis Museum, at the Casa del LLibre, Barcelona, Spain; NeoLatinísiiimo Art Biennial at the City Lights Gallery, Bridgeport, Connecticut, USA; Mirades des del confinament, con Joan Fontcuberta, Festival Cruïlla, Òmnium Cultural, Igualada, España, among others.
