Kicking off a vibrant global arts calendar in 2024, STPI – Creative Workshop & Gallery celebrates local and regional contemporary art through its participation in three highlight events at Singapore Art Week: ART SG, the leading international art fair in Singapore and Southeast Asia, homegrown curatorial platform S.E.A. Focus, as well as Meditations on Shadow Libraries, a solo exhibition held in STPI gallery, featuring works by leading Singapore artist Heman Chong, curated by New York-based Brian Kuan Wood.
“Southeast Asia is an unmistakably thriving space that demands burgeoning interest in the international art conversation. Through our diverse activities across Singapore Art Week, we hope to spotlight local and regional artists who have made ground- breaking STPI works in print and paper, and excite new audiences on the artistic possibilities rising here at home in Southeast Asia.”
