The phase of accepting applications for the "Ardhje 2013" award has began.
It is open to all Albanian artists 35 years of age or younger that have already completed their studies.

This is the seventh edition of “ARDHJE” organized by T.I.C.A. (Tirana Institute of Contemporary Art) in collaboration with FSC-Foundation for Civil Society in New York and generous support byFAVA - Foundation for Albanian Visual Arts across borders in Tirana. 

The finalists are selected by an international jury of well-known curators, critics and artists; and will showcase their work as part of the exhibition "ARDHJE 2013" in June 2013 

The award winner will receive a six-week artist residency in New York, while the two second-prize winners will obtain a two-month residency program at T.I.C.A in Tirana.
TICA is the first centre for contemporary art in Tirana. It offers a much needed permanent platform for Albanian and international contemporary art in Albania. During the last years, the Albanian scene has thrived with various events of different size or quality. The Tirana Biennale has been Albania's most ambitious art event, however a biennale only takes place every second year and this leads to a serious discontinuity in the art scene that also suffers from a highly limited institutional respective private support. TICA has thus been an important complement to support a vital art scene on a more continuous basis through a diverse program supported by a light and flexible organizative structure that has allowed for exhibitions, film screenings and performance events as well as to create a forum for discussions and debates about art, politics and power.
Another important function of TICA is it's international A.I.R. program. The residency program is important as the first structure to offer support and encouragement to promising local artists and for enabling cross-cultural exchange in the Balkan region and beyond, as a response to the lost communication that has led to a nationalistic misuse of culture. Other important functions of TICA are the supporting of artistic production, the establishment of an archive of contemporary art in Albania and a reference library on international contemporary art. A great awareness and a strong engagement in gender-related questions and concerns will also permeate not only the activity of TICA but also its organization as a whole. TICA will be an attempt to reintroduce culture as one of the most effective ways in pushing for critical thinking in relation to our contemporary condition and will bring together all the energies, knowledge and contacts of all its founding members, to create an independent platform for socio-politically engaged contemporary art.
