STPI Singapore, Singapore Overview

The Singapore Tyler Print Institute is a renowned international space for artistic experimentation in contemporary art through print and paper mediums. This studio has multiple award-winning painters. The STPI has collaborations with artists for creative workshops in their gallery. The workshops offer dynamic residency programs for leading artists around the world for experimentation and to push boundaries of alternative methods and materials for artistic creation. The gallery is set up in a 19th-century warehouse by the Singapore River, at Robertson Quay. This 4000 square meter zone is home to specialised printmaking presses and equipment, a 400 sq mt gallery, a paper mill, guest workshop, artist studio, artist apartment, staff offices and the Corner Shop.

The Institute is a part of the national visual arts cluster of leading institutions in the region, along with the National Gallery Singapore and the Singapore Art Museum. STPI is also a member of Art Galleries Association of Singapore, a non-profit organisation representing the interests of gallery operators and owners of the city. The STPI was established with support from the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth, the Singapore Tourist Board and Singapore Totalisator Board, in association with the government's renaissance city plan to rank the country as the prime arts hub of Southeast-Asia. STPI's critically acclaimed programmes and tremendous expertise in workshops makes it one of the best destinations for contemporary arts in the continent.
