La Galerie Légitime 2.0 Section From Davis Museum

What/who inspired the work?

In January of 1962, Robert Filliou decided to create his own art gallery that he has entitled La galerie légitime (The legitimate gallery), considering legitimate that "the art descends from its heights in the street". This traveling gallery has been created in a cap, because it covers the head, the brain, since according to the artist: "everything comes from the brain". In it was stamped the phrase "Galerie Légitime – couvre-chef (s)-d’œuvre (s)" (Legitimate gallery - headdress (s) - work (s)", playing on double reading: "chapeau (couvre-chef) qui couvre des œuvres (chefs d’œuvres)", that means: hat (headgear) that covers works (masterpieces)". The artist has taken it on the street, exhibiting small format creations made by his friends or by himself, as is the case of Measurements (objects such as subway tickets or matchboxes measured by unusual units such as fingerprints or bedbugs ), Momified Objects (Mummified Objects, that is to say strung) and the Jeu recommandé de la Galerie Légitime (Recommended Game of the Legitimate Gallery), a false deck with which anyone could play but in the final result, they all won.

In July 1962, Filliou also organized Les voyages de la Galerie Légitime (Legitime Gallery trips) in which he exhibited small-format works by Benjamin Patterson, who had proposed a route for the exhibition in the streets of Paris lasted 24 hours, from the Porte Saint-Denis to Galerie Girardon, Boulevard Pasteur, where the both artists have done some micro events.

In October 1962, during the exhibition Misfit's Fair in London, he inaugurated The Frozen Exhibition, Oct. 62 - Oct. 72, a exposition gelée because the vernissage was to last ten years, the time usually required, according to him, for a production to be broadcast.

What do you hope its viewers will feel/think?

Why did you choose the medium, subject matter, style?
