The Kuwaiti Art Scene


Artistic Exchange opportunities

Because of the situation described above, both local artists and patrons are very interested in artistic exchange with more developed art scenes. Residencies of foreign artists in Kuwait were mentioned several times as a desirable development, but there are as yet no structures to welcome artists in residence, although the Contemporary Art Platform is planning one. One way in which external agents could help, is by engaging in medium- to long-term projects in Kuwait engaging at least several artists and/or art professionals there. It should not be difficult to find patronage for such projects among the above-mentioned patrons. In the longer term, Kuwaitis also need support in setting up an art educational facility.
