THE PAINTING SECTION FROM DAVIS MUSEUM

The Davis Lisboa Mini-Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona

Davis Lisboa, “Robert Filliou 18”, 2018, oil on canvas, 15.7 x 15.7 x 1.57 in (40 x 40 x 3.5 cm)


What/who inspired the work?
I have been inspired by a photograph of Robert Filliou with glasses and smoking a cigarette. I do not know the name of the photographer, as well as the place and the year in which the portrait was made.

What do you hope its viewers will feel/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 (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).
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.

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:
