Master of Disguise

Whether portraying a drunken Viking rocker washed up on South Beach or picking his nose while protecting Britain's crown jewels, Magnus Sigurdarson's creative high jinks are enough to make Sybil's head spin. The Icelandic artist's riffs on identity, "Operation Beefeater: of Man and His Nature," are on display at Pan American Art Projects (2450 NW Second Ave., Miami) at 6 p.m. as part of Second Saturdays: Art Walk in Wynwood and the Design District. A ribald show exploring "the space between disguise and anonymity," the exhibit features Sigurdarson wearing a stately beefeater costume, pike in hand, in a series of loony scenarios that channel the iconic character on your favorite bottle of gin.

Then, walk to the Hardcore Art Contemporary Space (3326 N. Miami Ave., Miami) to catch "Love, Infatuation or Lust," a seductive Valentine's Day tribute including more than 20 artists whose mixed-media musings on the nature of relationships conspire to twang heartstrings.
