Tirana Art Center is a non profit public space, created by Fani Zguro, that promotes contemporary art. TAC’s purpose is not collecting or creating a museum of contemporary art. Starting from the month of october 2007 this space will represent the realization of expositions consisting in selecting some of the best artists in the international art arena. The fact that the Albanian capital city, among many others, doesn’t have a market for contemporary art, makes it almost paradoxial that TAC will represent emergent artists, because this will not help to launch anyone. Following from this fact this space will try to bring to the capital city the most well known contemporary artists, offering to the albanian spectator that particular fragment of art, which this spectator for different missed many art events, such as The Venice Biennal, Munster, Manifesta, Art Basel, Documenta Kassel etc. In this way TAC becomes a ‘satellite’ that wants to deliver to the Tirana’s spectator, an essential selection of the contemporary art, through a international context.
