Art Madrid'24 – MALKOVICH, MALKOVICH, MALKOVICH… A PHOTOGRAPHIC TRIBUTE WITHOUT SHAME

Malkovich's personality is not satisfied with playing the role of some of the most memorable film characters or having a movie completely dedicated to him. The actor's relationship with the image transcends the sphere of pure interpretation and dares to participate in projects where his intervention involves acting work but demands, in turn, expose a large part of himself, of the individual and citizen Malkovich.

Philippe Halsman, “Salvador Dalí”, 1954, reinterpretation by Sandro Miller in 2014

For this reason, when photographer Sandro Miller contacted the actor for a proposal to participate in his project, he did not hesitate for a moment. The offer was very juicy: to emulate some of the most famous images in the history of photography, Malkovich being portrayed, who should impersonate all those characters.

Bert Stern, “Marilyn in Pink Roses” from “The Last Session”, 1962, reinterpretation by Sandro Miller in 2014

Thus, it began a relationship between photographer and actor in which Sandro Miller was able to pay a great tribute to the masters of the image that had been to him the main source of inspiration throughout his career. With the desire to pay tribute to them and at the same time play with the reinterpretation of the images, this project required a person who was not afraid of ridicule and who was willing to transform himself openly.

Arthur Sasse, “Albert Einstein”, 1951, reinterpretation by Sandro Miller in 2014

Sandro Miller's career has run almost entirely along the paths of advertising photography. Despite this, from a young age, he felt a deep admiration for the work of some master photographers, a wake that has accompanied him at all times and that encouraged him to undertake more risky and diverse personal projects when time allowed.

Annie Leibovitz, “Meryl Steep in NYC”, 1981, reinterpretation by Sandro Miller in 2014

On this occasion "Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich: Tribute to the masters of photography" has allowed the actor to put himself in the shoes of Marylin Monroe, Albert Einstein, Hemingway, Jack Nicholson, Che Guevara, Salvador Dalí, Alfred Hitchcock, Truman Capote, Meryl Streep, Bette Davis, Pablo Picasso, among others; and to Sandro Miller, to emulate the work of Philippe Haslman, Alberto Korda, Arthur Sasse, Annie Leibovit, Diane Arbus, Bert Stern or Irving Penn, to mention some of them.

After passing through numerous European cities, the San Telmo Museoa centre now hosts this exhibition that will be open to the public until November 17th. Do not miss it.

 

This 19th edition of Art Madrid stands out for the presence of around two hundred artists and more than a thousand works in a variety of media, a characteristic feature of the exhibition proposals presented by the participating galleries. All of them stand out for their originality, formal quality and correspondence with current artistic trends.

Cultura Inquieta works in the creation and curatorship of cultural content, so for another year, accompany us in this experience to discover talent in all disciplines (painting, sculpture, graphic arts, photography, art installations...). For the 19th edition, we explore and disseminate art among emerging and established artists and galleries. Art Madrid'24 will take place from March 6 to 10, 2024 at the Galería de Cristal del Palacio de Cibeles. It will be an edition where you can enjoy the contemporary art of the moment in an event full of novelties.



As prescribers of culture and art, Cultura Inquieta works with cultural content for its dissemination, offering specialized communication services, training and disruptive events for companies. They define themselves as the culture of something alive, in constant movement, without fear of feeling alive. A platform that gives space to new voices.

This edition is characterized by its impact on the latest artistic trends. The participating galleries offer the opportunity to see the latest production of some of their artists in the last year; a time of research and reflection with creative results that will have a great impact on the contemporary art market.

Together with Cultura Inquieta, we have prepared a selection of 25 works that we would like to highlight. You will be able to identify them at the fair because each one will have a Cultura Inquieta sticker next to it. We hope you enjoy them.
