From Toronto, with Love presents 24 vintage suitcases, each unique and transformed by individual artists working in diverse medias including contemporary painting, industrial design, filmmaking, weaving, photography, architectural model-making, collage and sculpture.

Originally designed to carry medical supplies from Not Just Tourists Toronto to remote clinics in need, these suitcases were repurposed for art after being found unsuitable for their initial aim. The artists involved reflect on the idea of journeys, destinations, and the privileges and limitations of health care at home and abroad.

Viewers will be invited to draw upon and sign the “guest book” suitcases. These suitcases will be used by Not Just Tourists Toronto to continue a project of forging connections through travel.
