Description:

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.  In Iceland, Sigurdarson mentored many younger artists, including Ragnar Kjartansson who had a recent exhibition at MOCA.  

Clearwater notes, “One of the essential aspects of any art community is the interaction between its artists. Trading Places helps to forge a stronger relationship between multi-generational artists and the students they mentor and to engage the public in the creative process.”  

In this second installment of MOCA’s experimental program, Trading Places, South Florida artists will swap their studios for studio spaces in MOCA’s galleries. The program provides the artists with materials, technical assistants and opportunities to interact, respond to and investigate each others’ practices and engage in discussions with the public. Each of the selected artists has reached a critical moment in their career when they can benefit most from the opportunity to work with MOCA’s curatorial and technical staff.

Trading Places II is on view through November 11, 2012.
Trading Places II is made possible by MOCA’s Knight Exhibition Endowment.
