Suitcase Project

Through the lens of immigration and migration, this project examines the condensed universe of the luggage, along with replicating presentation and engagement on the topic of immigration.

This traveling exhibition originated with the Cleveland Print Room.  It is now on view for a month at Akron Soul Train.
Through the lens of immigration and migration, this project examines the condensed universe of the luggage, along with replicating presentation and engagement on the topic of immigration. The Suitcase Project recasts the narrative of immigrants in Cleveland communities using their own voice and vision. We asked participants to create an innovative project that considers the content of the luggage as a study in cultural self-portraiture.

Through an open call, nine participants from immigrant families (up to two generations removed) were chosen to create suitcases of meaningful artifacts from their home countries and new artwork as part of a traveling exhibition.
