STPI Annual Friends Fundraiser: Biome

STPI Gallery is pleased to announce anovel concept for its upcoming annual fundraising event, Biome. As 2020 continues to unfold, we embrace a dynamic turn and take on a twofold format this year – an online auction running from 16 to 25 October 2020, and a new onsite segment Encounters occurring over the weekend of 24 & 25 October 2020.


In the new segment, fundraiser guests will be treated to a series of personal and thought-provoking artist-led activities held across the STPI building. An Encounters ticket will entitle one guest to a total of 5 unique rooms, each hosted by a notable Singapore-based artist. The multimedia experience will allow guests to discover unseen processes and personalities of the artists, each responding to the various nooks and crannies of STPI.
