Contemporary Art Platform (CAP) is a non-profit private organization founded in 2011 by art collector Amer Huneidi. CAP is dedicated to developing and supporting the arts in Kuwait and throughout the region. The gallery has presented exhibitions of established and international artists, as well as emerging and local artists through collective, thematic shows curated by Arab and international curators.
CAP’s mission is equally committed to its educational program which offers workshops, seminars and weekly film screenings. Artist talks and panel discussions are presented in conjunction with exhibitions and exhibition tours are offered to school groups. The gallery also includes a public library and holds one of the largest collections of art books in Kuwait. CAP has played a role in establishing Kuwait as a contributor to the global art world and fosters the next generation of art lovers in the region.
