SPOTLIGHT with Trading Places II Artists: Magnus Sigurdarson and Rick Ulysse

THE FREEDOM OF DIFFICULTY: DIFFICULTY OF FREEDOM

Join Trading Places II artists Magnus Sigurdarson and Rick Ulysse for a collaborative workshop in which the artists will work with participants on assigned projects. A discussion will be held at the conclusion.

Magnus Sigurdarson was born in Reykjavik, Iceland in 1966. He will further explore the concept of identity and his search for "Miami Melancholy," which has been ongoing since his move to Miami in 2004. "As a true blood Northerner with deep roots in Melancholy and the poetic enclose or angst as an artistic motivator, I have been searching for the 'Tropical Melancholy' and the 'Subliminal in the flatness of Florida.' This has of course opened my heart to all the other emotions," Sigurdarson notes.
