THE PAINTING SECTION FROM DAVIS MUSEUM The Davis Lisboa Mini-Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona Davis Lisboa, “Musée d'Art Moderne 10”, 2021, oil on canvas, 31,50 x 31,50 x 1,57 in (80 x 80 x 3,5 cm). What/who inspired the work? Conceptually, I was inspired by a photography of the "Musée d'Art Moderne, Département des Aigles, Section XIXème Siècle" by Marcel Broodthaers. From 27 September 1968 to 27 September 1969, Marcel Broodthaers ran the "Musée d'Art Moderne, Département des Aigles, Section XIXème Siècle" in his home in Brussels. It consisted of several elements including empty crates, postcards, and a ladder. The crates normally served for transporting works of art and were covered with inscriptions and logos that emphasized the fragility of the works. The crates were supposedly empty, but whether they effectively were, remained an open question. The postcards were reproductions of famous 19th-century paintings. Here, Broodthaers played with the authenticity and reproducibility of the work. The work of art is a museum and Broodthaers considered himself its curator. In this capacity he received visitors, and sent letters, full of riddles and word games, to fellow conservators, friends, and artists (Section Littéraire - Literary Section). Later, the museum had other sections in different locations, from 1969 (Antwerp, A379089) until 1972 (documenta V, Kassel and Kunsthalle, Düsseldorf). Source: https://www.forgottenheritage.eu/artworks/1335/musee-d-art-moderne-departement-des-aigles-section-xixeme-siecle From a formal point of view, I have been inspired by two artists: Gerhard Richter and Pierre Bonnard. I have been inspired by Richter's method of work which consists of collecting photographs that he then projects onto a canvas and also by Bonnard and his "intimate" paintings of everyday actions in quiet interiors. What do you hope its viewers will think? I hope that viewers understand that there is a narrative within the history of art that deals with the artists who created their own museums. This narrative is constructed through 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). Following this narrative, I decided to create the Davis Museum | The Davis Lisboa Mini-Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona - https://www.davismuseum.com - (2009-ongoing), which is, simultaneously, a readymade sculpture, a non-profit collective art project, and at the same time, a cultural entity recognized by the Generalitat de Catalunya (an Autonomous Community in Spain). http://pect.cultura.gencat.cat/difusio/Fitxa?index=347&consulta=MCU0KzA4MDE5MyU%3D&codi=C10568&fbclid=IwAR2uhNxa7NSoGum5xBWsAkJI_G1X8eVGFZz5F_ZlSkRJH91YCVUUmOMzkWk Created symbolically in an electoral ballot box and disseminated mainly through Facebook, the Davis Museum is also the smallest contemporary art museum in the world. This cultural entity has several sections and one of them is "The Paintings Section From Davis Museum". It is divided into portraits and still lifes. The portraits represent Marcel Duchamp, Robert Filliou and Marcel Broodthaers; while still lifes represent the "Boîte-en-valise" (Box in a suitcase), the "Galerie légitime" (Legitimate gallery) and the "Musée d'Art Moderne, Département des Aigles" (Museum of Modern Art, Department of Eagles). Why did you choose the medium, the frame format and the 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 for this work: linen canvas, oil paintings by Old Holland and medium by Blockx. 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, I chose the same color for all the paintings. “The Paintings Section” is the only section from Davis Museum where works of art are on sale.
