Katara Art Center
Katara Art Center – KAC is an independently run platform founded in 2012 by Tariq Al Jaidah, dedicated to contemporary art and trans-disciplinary creative endeavors, projects, and practices.
Katara Art Center acts as a hub for emerging cultural communities in response to the need for a critical grassroots and multidisciplinary framework in Doha that engages with socially relevant issues and events both contemporary and historical. Artists, designers and the public of all ages are encouraged to expand and challenge their understanding of contemporary art and creative disciplines. Through the facilitation of theoretical and practical programs, KAC encourages and fosters the construction of productive and sustainable collaboration among individuals and institutions locally and internationally, beyond reactionary market trends.
KAC supports emerging artists and designers through in-house exhibitions in the gallery, workshops, exhibitions in the region and abroad.
A community oriented program engage enthusiasts, students, institutions and professionals to foster the sharing of skills, knowledge, and experience.
Designers, students and enthusiasts are exposed to new and unconventional ways of looking at design while keeping close to its original intent.
KAC also supports young and established collectors to develop a keen and genuine interest in arts of all disciplines and support for artists of all nationalities.
