International tender for the ArtExplorer Village's architecture and design


In 2023 Art Explora will launch a museum boat that will travel the oceans to offer visitors around the world innovative artistic and cultural experiences.

With a capacity of up to 2,000 visitors per day, the museum boat will navigate from port to port to meet new audiences, offering a unique and immersive artistic experience on the boat, as well as a rich arts and cultural programme in the accompanying village. The museum boat and village aim to make a dozen stops per year in different countries around the world.

The village is conceived as a place for exhibitions, meetings and cultural activities of all kinds, enriched by a programme of cultural events supported by local curators and arts organisations. It will be a bridge between the host city and the boat in almost all the ports. The village is also the entrance point to the boat itself, and must therefore reflect and endorse the foundation’s values and activities.

To develop the architecture and design of the Village, Art Explora is launching an international tender.
