Kuwait’s Creative Hub | Contemporary Art Platform

By  | 
Founded in 2011 by art collector Amer Huneidi, Contemporary Art Platform (CAP) is a non-profit private organization aiming at developing and supporting the arts in Kuwait and more globally around the region. 
One of the most important exhibition spaces in the Gulf region, CAP prides itself in having presented many exhibitions of established international artists but also, and this is what caught our interest, of emerging and local artists that were mostly curated by Arab curators.

But CAP is also about education and is extremely committed to its extensive education program. Workshops, Panel discussions, exhibitions tours, film screenings… Many opportunities for the community to engage with the Art World. Moreover, with more than 2000 titles in their library, CAP is the largest public art book library in Kuwait.


CAP has been a key player in the establishment of Kuwait in the global art world and has been of a great contribution regarding the promotion of future generation of art enthusiasts around the region.
