30 years old: Tirana's changes <br> in an artistic project

(19 february 2019) Between July 2018 and March 2019, Italian artist Eugenio Tibaldi carried out  a project exhibited at the FAB Gallery of the University of Arts in Tirana from March 11 to 31. The title - "30 Years old" refers to a very precise historical age and suggests trying to celebrate it, one should not do it alone. It is precisely for this reason that the artist decided to carry out the project through a laboratory method. Starting from sharing his methodology and proposing a common theme to work on, the works on display are the result of the collaboration between young Albanian artists who responded to an open call. Starting from the first visit of Tibaldi in Albania in October 2018 and on the occasion of Contemporary Day, the participants in the project have walked, photographed, talked, analysed, organised, and produced works that are a reflection on the thirty-year change Tirana has experienced from 1989 until today. The project was carried out by the Italian Cultural Institute of Tirana in collaboration with the University of Arts and the Harabel Contemporary Art Platform.
