Our mission is to collect, under one roof, works by Arab artists regardless of their affiliations, schools and styles, in order to preserve, honour and expand their legacies.

Mathaf organises major exhibitions, both historical and experimental, and large-scale education programmes, performing an important role as a centre for dialogue and research and a resource for fostering creativity. Mathaf hosts solo and group exhibitions by artists from the region, and events that explore and celebrate modern and contemporary art.

Mathaf aims to become a resource for its visitors both physical and virtual, local and global, to learn about modern Arab art.
