Tirana Art Lab – Center for Contemporary Art is a contemporary art institution. In 2010, it was founded on the initiative of Adela Demetja, who has organized a lot of international exhibitions in many European countries. The aim of TAL is to promote new artists from Albania as well as from Central, Eastern, and South Eastern Europe, and to boost projects critically engaged with artistic, cultural and social issues. A wide variety of events take place, such as exhibitions, film festivals, workshops and concerts. Moreover, TAL is the first Albanian institution collaborating with ‘’Institut national d’histoire de l’art’’ in Paris, and the first art and cultural organization in Albania supported, in the framework of an international partnership project (Heroes We Love), by the Creative Europe Programme. The Laboratory consists of an exhibition space, a space for artists in residence and an open public library of contemporary art books.
