Seeing John Malkovich

Malkovich as art, at the Catherine Edelman Gallery

  • 06 October 2014

John Malkovich.

In many ways, the consummate chameleon.

One moment he’s playing an angry blind ex-serviceman. Another: a womanizing French aristocrat. Sometimes he’s a dimwitted farmhand. Or a hatchet-wielding CIA analyst.

And a creepy psychopath, like, all the other times.

Begs the question: What hasn’t he done?

Answer: Malkovich, Malkovich, Malovich: Homage to Photographic Masters, an exhibition coming to the Catherine Edelman Gallery in which the actor channels history’s most iconic photographs.

Malkovich as John Lennon on that notorious Rolling Stone cover, shot by Annie Leibovitz, for example.

Or, Malkovich as Hemingway.

In short: they’re hilarious. Oddly profound. And up for sale.

Here’s a little preview gallery.

Chicago native Sandro Miller is the mastermind behind the lens, an acclaimed portrait photographer whose painstaking detail work here acts as a tribute to the pictures that inspired his craft.

The show opens November 7th.

No word yet on whether Malkovich will be there.

But you certainly should be.
