The exhibition runs from Saturday 29th May
to Sunday 13th June 2004
In the schema of painter Wong Shih Yaw’s latest exhibition, clothes not only make the man, in some instances, they take on a life of their own. There is inordinate attention paid to detail in the crumpling of cloth, the texturing of material, and the dramatic ordering of garments in an animated interplay between clothes and clothes, and between clothes and man. Clothes not only envelope man, they also envelope other clothes in multi-layered compositions. As clothes now become the metaphor for the philosophy and teachings we take on upon ourselves, we observe Shih Yaw anticipating better outcomes in the new cloak that religion has provided for him, exploring endless new directions while he rests comfortably in God’s fold - In Thee.

'IN PRINT' - The Best of British Contemporary Printmaking
Dear friends and colleagues
STPI and British Council, with the support of the National Arts Council and in conjunction with the Singapore Arts Festival, present 'IN PRINT' - The Best of British Contemporary Printmaking 6.30 pm, Friday 4 June STPI Gallery, 41 Robertson Quay.
Guest-of-Honour: Mr Yatiman Yusof, Senior Parliamentary Secretary, Ministry of Information, Communications and the Arts
You are cordially invited to the opening of 'IN PRINT' at 6.30 pm on Friday 4 June. The exhibition will feature 123 contemporary prints by 24 prominent British artists, including Turner Prize nominees and winners. The artists include Damien Hirst, Chris Ofili, Anish Kapoor, Jake & Dinos Chapman, Gary Hume, Marc Quinn, Cerith Wyn Evans and Sir Terry Frost and many others from the YBA (Young British Artists) group.
The prints were created through collaborations between leading London-based print publisher, Paragon Press, and artists not usually engaged in the graphic arts. The influence of different art practices provided fertile grounds for experimentation and technical development, resulting in an unprecedented representation of contemporary British art in various print media ranging from screenprints and etchings to lithographs and woodcuts.
Patrick Elliot, Senior Curator of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, will be at the opening to talk very briefly about the works. He will also be giving a public talk at 2.30 pm on Saturday 5 June at the STPI Gallery.
The exhibition, which has toured to Russia, Yugoslavia, Israel, Slovenia and Japan, will be on at STPI from 5 June to 4 July.

Survey for 'Downstairs
Dear Friends of The Artists Village,
In February 2004, we held a focus group to discuss and brainstorm about a
project called "Downstairs" as part of our City As a Canvas campaign. The
project would take place "downstairs" in HDB areas.
We are conducting a survey for the project. We are inviting you to
participate in this survey. As this is a very short survey (2 pages), if
you can afford the time your participation will help us greatly. The
information would help us understand the needs of our community and help us
shape the project.
To participate in survey please click on this url:
(survey expires 31 May 2004)
Once again Thank you for your time.
