Art in a Suitcase is a curatorial project created by art critic and curator Vasja Nagy in 2010. The project is based on the need of communication between contemporary artists, art spaces and galleries, theorists, and public. The result are established connections and collaborations. The form of the project is packing artworks of international artists in a suitcase and travel in a short period of time to as many places as possible and (re)present the artworks, the artists and the idea of the project itself, which acts as a critic of institutional art production and presentation. The travel in 2010 included cities of Vienna (12-14 Contemporary), Budapest, Prague, Dresden, Berlin, Ravenna, Mola di Bari, Istanbul and a year later Ljubljana. The travel in 2016 (in collaboration with 12-14 Contemporary) was in Mexico and included events in Oaxaca del Juarez, Xochimilco and at 3 spaces in Ciudad de Mexico. The final exhibition took place at Museo Cara in Mugga near Trieste in March 2018.
“Featuring” is also a result and success of the project Art in a Suitcase where various subjects of the project meet. Paolo Ferluga is a member of community that organize exhibitions at Museo Cara in Muggia and the exchange means building bridges between distant places, artists, public.
