Container Artist Residency and Zim Integrated Shipping Services Ltd., announced the seven recipients of the Container Artist Residency 01, the inaugural edition of a unique artist-in-residence program that takes place on board commercial cargo ships in 2016.

 

Comprising an international group of participants, the selected artists represent a range of media and approaches. The selected artists are offered accommodations and studio space on board ZIM’s container ships for up to three weeks.

 

Hosted as a resident alongside the operating crew, each artist works and stays in a modest private cabin. Given that Internet access on the ships is extremely limited, the residency presents an opportunity for solitary thinking and working while traveling internationally.

 

The artists are expected to explore their practice within this exceptional environment, with the aim of producing artworks that will be shown in a traveling exhibition. The exhibition will open in June 2016 in Tel Aviv, Israel, and will subsequently be presented in six additional cities around the world.

 

Comprising an international group of participants, the selected artists represent a range of media and approaches. The artists chosen are Mari Bastashevski, Tyler Coburn, Revital Cohen and Tuur Van Balen, Erin Diebboll, Ferenc Gróf, Christopher Page, and Samson Young. ZIM Integrated Shipping Services (Project Sponsor) has provided creative operational and logistical solutions to customers since 1945.

 

Over the course of 70 years, the company has grown to become a leading force in the shipping industry, and has grown into a network of vast geographical reach founded on a tradition of excellence.

 

During spring 2016, the artists-in-residence will each travel on board a commercial cargo ship along a route of their choice. For a period of up to six weeks, each artist will receive studio space and accommodation in one of the ship’s cabins, as well as an honorarium and production funding.

 

The work developed through this process will subsequently be exhibited in a set of international exhibitions from late 2016 to summer 2017. ZIM Integrated Shipping Services (Project Sponsor) has provided creative operational and logistical solutions to customers since 1945.
