TICA is proud to announce the launch of its extended residency program:
TICA A.I.R. LAB
The AIR LAB consists of a re-worked profile of the existing artist in residency program of TICA. Through the generous support of Princ Claus Culturfund, and as part of the Network Partnership grant of the foundation, TICA AIRLAB will be able to organize two residency periods per year, for a period of three years. The residencies will be thematic, with a different theme to be explored every year. The residencies will also be multidisciplinary, with a focus on contemporary art but extending to other forms of expression, including theater, music, performance and architecture. Two other novelties within AIRLAB are the sending of one Albanian artist at a residency abroad, and a yearly digital publication, with documentation of the works and theoretical contributions on the yearly theme of the residency.
