Chicago Reader’s favorite visual art of 2014!

Chicago Reader’s favorite visual art of 2014

Whether by some grand conspiracy or maybe (probably) just coincidence, Chicago’s curators and gallery owners spent 2014 preoccupied with the idea of transformation. Two of the fall’s most highly anticipated shows, “David Bowie Is” at the MCA and “Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich” at Catherine Edelman Gallery, starring John Malkovich in Sandro Miller’s re-creations of iconic photographs, highlighted the multifarious incarnations of their subjects.    -Chicago Reader

Chicagoans and visitors alike braved large crowds over the weekend to bid adieu to the MCA’s David Bowie Is. This fantastic retrospective of the popular pop star highlighted him not only as a singer, but as a musician, actor, and above all a visual artist.

But, let’s not be sad our beloved Bowie is gone, because Malkovich will continue on! Sandro Miller’s Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich: Homage to photographic masters exhibition will be on view until January 31st!

Thank you Chicago Reader for the fantastic highlight!
