Join us to sit on the bleachers one more time before Magnús show closes. PAMM curator Rene Morales and Magnús Sigurðarson will have a conversation about his show ADIOS MELANCHOLY – THE PARROTY OF LIFE. We can ask questions, and maybe together we can figure out the question that’s been haunting me : What does it mean? Will there be a sequel? – Tyler Emerson-Dorsch
