Ship of Tolerance

Ship of Tolerance

Ilya and Emilia Kabakov, two of the most celebrated artists of their generation, are widely known for their large-scale installations. Join the Docks are delighted to host their Ship of Tolerance outside The Crystal on the sparkling water.

First launched in Egypt in 2005, the Ship has subsequently been created in Venice, San Moritz, Sharjah, Miami, Havana, Moscow, New York, Zug, Rome, and Rostock. The project was awarded the prestigious Cartier Prize for the Best Art Project of the Year in 2010.

The Ship of Tolerance is a truly international art project, created to educate and connect children from different continents, cultures, and identities through the universal language of art. Adults are welcome to visit, too!

Alongside the Ship, its project includes an extensive outreach programme which engages schools, community groups, and cultural organisations in workshops designed to discuss tolerance and diversity among cultures, races and ideas.

The Ship of Tolerance is moored at the dock edge, so it can be viewed at any time, although the sail may be taken down in high winds.

This project is delivered in partnership with Totally Thames festival.
