Re-cast is an architectural photography exhibition organized by CAP and sponsored by Pace. The exhibition showcases the works of local architects who have all undergone a 5-day workshop under the guidance of Samer Yamani and Gunnar Knechtel, where buildings were documented, assessed, and manipulated to create an entirely new perspective of the architecture. Some of the works displayed were truly fascinating. I’ve always thought that nothing can capture the personality of a building like a good picture can, and this was exactly the case here.

The Contemporary Art Platform is the newest hub for contemporary artists/art lovers in Kuwait. It’s a 700-square-meter space, located in the Industrial Shuwaikh area of Kuwait. Its facilities include a number of movable exhibition walls, an arts library (with over 1000 books), cinema, conference room, design corner, and a cafe.
The official launching event is scheduled for today Wednesday, Sept. 28, 2011 at 7:00 pm. It will be hosting the Face To Face exhibition, featuring portrait artworks of international artists, coming from several art collectors in Kuwait (I read on their fb page that there will be artistic portraits of Ives San Laurent & Salvador Dali so that should be interesting)
The exhibition will be ongoing until Oct 15, 2011.
