Havana, Cuba - 2012

With its commanding presence and message of peace and unity, Ilya and Emilia Kabakov‘s Ship of Tolerance stood out amidst the other artworks at the eleventh annual Havana Biennial, in May of 2012.

The Ship of Tolerance project was modeled after an ancient Egyptian sailing craft. They supplied history and art books and collaborated with local teachers to conduct workshops. With the help of a volunteer artist, the eager youngsters incorporated what they learned into their own paintings of ships, which were printed onto the structure’s sail.
