All seven suitcases will be displayed together during Doors Open Hamilton, at the former Foresters Hall, which dates back to 1884. Home of the International Orders of Foresters until the early 20th century, the building is undergoing a renaissance as an arts centre complete with workshops and studios. This is the first No Fixed Address venue where all the suitcases can be seen together in one space.

  • About the project

    No Fixed Address was a series of mobile art spaces, utilizing suitcases as containers for artistic projects by Hamilton-based artists. This alternative method of exhibiting artistic practices traveled around Hamilton cultural locations from April until June 2007.
