Good on Pa­per


Singapore Tatler - - FACES | ONLOOKER -

An un­usual in­vi­ta­tion—a pair of glow-in-the-dark sun­glasses— set the stage for the fun to be had at the STPI An­nual Friends Gala Din­ner 2018. Art col­lec­tors and friends of STPI ar­rived at its Robert­son Quay home in their Eight­ies best, and were trans­ported to the decade with de­tails in the event decor such as an in­ter­ac­tive screen-print­ing sta­tion called Bil­lie Screen is Not My Lover. Guests also got a pre­view of an up­com­ing show­case, Frag­ments from a Col­lec­tive Unity, by Los An­ge­les-based artist Aaron Curry. A pre-launch of the 15th An­niver­sary Col­lec­tors’ Edi­tion art­works, made to mark the col­lab­o­ra­tions be­tween STPI and its artists through­out the years, also took place that evening. Other high­lights in­cluded per­for­mances by the artist com­mu­nity in­clud­ing Curry him­self, and a live auc­tion that raised a record-break­ing $700,000 for the not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion. Af­ter a sump­tu­ous din­ner by bar and smoke­house Meat Smith, an ex­hil­a­rated Emi Eu, STPI ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor, thanked the tight-knit com­mu­nity for their sup­port and in­vited ev­ery­one to con­tinue the rev­elry on the dance floor.
