SUPPORT FOR YOUNG ARTISTS
+ Studio space
+ Curatorial support
The world and art today run as a system.
Avast! We sail our ship on these seas of our art world. We seek not to make profit in the markets, but to find glory and beauty in freedom on the seas.
This is the last ship for free artists. Outside the kingdoms and the markets that we are all part of. Weighing anchor just off the ocean in Bandra.
To seek adventure. And to find fortune.
On a deck where time has stopped and mermaids still sing and stars still shine.
Last Ship is shut for the time being because of its vicinity becoming unsuitable for artistic and community work.
If we find the right time, place and people we will reopen.

Featuring new videos works on view at Last Ship Artist residency Across Upon – by Nellie Kluz
|Introducing Nellie - winter artist at Last Ship||
12 Oct 2012
I come to Last Ship from Boston, MA, where I make documentaries and work for the LEF Foundation, an organization that funds independent filmmaking in New England. I make movies by trying to stand back and observe, entering into a learning process by filming. I look for subjects that hold promising visual opportunities and a chance to meet new and surprising people. I graduated from Boston University and I’ve worked for Documentary Educational Resources, a distributor of anthropological and ethnographic films.

Floy Krouchi was our artist in residence for the month of April.
During her stay here, Floy collaborated with Tejal Shah on her latest multi disciplinary project, titled, Between the Waves. Tejal’s recent artistic research has gravitated to include a completely new nexus of interest area -- the intersection of Buddhist philosophy, post-pornography, biological exuberance, ecology, interspecies and posthumanism.
The universe is not only queerer than we suppose, it is queerer than we can suppose.

Chintan Upadhyay’s catalyst for an early launch of the ship into the

selected by Chintan from a word-of-mouth group of applications.
‘The polymorphous locus of human existence.’ ‘Collection and archiving.’ ‘The disorder of the built space.’
The first project at Last Ship. The project that started it all.
Pravin Waghmare’s exhibition of sculptures, installation and digital works on paper at the Jehangir Art Gallery, Mumbai.
‘Monotony and alterations in an unknowingly discreet process.’
