In the summer of 2009, The Swimming Cities of Serenissima sailed from Slovenia to Italy and made its way up the Grand Canal in Venice.

Brooklyn artist Swoon (a.k.a. Caledonia Curry) conceived the Swimming Cities' shanty boats, built from salvaged junk as a collective artwork.

Her work was included in Radical Seafaring at The Parrish Museum of Art, in 2016, which likened work created on the water by contemporary artists to the Land Art movement of the '60s/'70s;
