Anri Sala at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Cleveland

Dammi i Colori, 2003, video, 14 minutes:

"In this video, Anri Sala meditates upon the newly painted, brightly colored facades lining the dilapidated streetscapes of Tirana, Albania. An embodiment of social and political change, the presence of these colors marks the dissolution of communism and the resurgence of individual expression in unusual ways." (The video also indicates that the mayor of Tirana is a painter.)
