NAC/National Art Center
20 Gudiashvili Str.
The NAC/National Art Center, our home-base, is the last remainder of a huge complex, called the ‘House of the Painters’, which housed galleries, artists studios and other cultural activities. It was burned and destroyed by all fighting parties in the civil war for it’s strategic position right in front of the Parliament. The ruins are slowly beeing covered by modern garbage from the west; left overs from the fast-food generation, thrown carelessly over the fence. A 50 meter long repetitive print of the new Georgian flag is blocking the view from this apocalyptic site. Filming in the backyard of the NAC in the direction of the Parliament is therefor strictly forbidden. As a security measure, but also to prevent this image from reaching the outer world. Only after two weeks we were informed that the roof of the Parliament is being occupied by snipers.
The NAC held exhibitions and events on a regular basis untill its closing down in 2006.
