STPI (Singapore Tyler Print Institute) is a catalyst and advocate for new ideas, dialogues and developments for contemporary art in print and paper. It collaborates with emerging and recognized artists worldwide to create artworks with its exceptional print, papermaking facilities and expertise. Established in 2002 with the support of the Singapore Government, STPI is a not-for-profit organization that presents innovative exhibitions and programs to a broad audience, where works on paper and print by contemporary artists can be discovered in unique and engaging ways.
A seminal figure in the East Village scene, Ashley Bickerton was one of the original members of the group of artists that became known as “Neo-Geo,” and remains an influential figure with a younger generation of artists.
Considered the leading Korean artist of her generation, Lee Bul has achieved international renown for her formally inventive, intellectually provocative oeuvre. Demonstrating virtuosity across diverse media – from drawing and performance to sculpture, painting, installation, and video – her multifaceted production is representative of the most innovative aesthetic currents shaping contemporary art in the global sphere.
Teresita Fernández is a conceptual artist best known for her prominent public sculptures and unconventional use of materials. Fernández’s work is characterized by an interest in perception and the psychology of looking. Her experiential, large-scale works are often inspired by landscape and natural phenomena as well as diverse historical and cultural references.
Interested in the malleability of space in both its physical and metaphorical manifestations, Do Ho Suh constructs site-specific installations that question the boundaries of identity. His work explores the relation between individuality, collectivity, and anonymity.
