In New Orleans, where truth is stranger than fiction, a suitcase may contain an entire world…
A battered suitcase has become the object of mystery and speculation since its discovery in New Orleans last year. Sealed for decades, the heavy valise was opened by Antenna curators in November to reveal a cache of bizarre miniature curios and documents. The origin and meaning of the suitcase’s contents have sparked the city’s imagination, offering a strange window into 1880s-1920s New Orleans. For a limited time, Antenna Gallery will be offering the public a chance to view the suitcase’s contents. Perhaps someone can help to shed light on the mysteries within or the identity of their owner.
