The Art Container Project was organised by the Mere Independent Artists (MIA) in Hong Kong and ran from 2008 to 2014. The project invited thirty-eight Hong Kong artists to paint on shipping containers which were then taken to various cities around the world and finally return to Hong Kong. Each journey lasted for three years.
