Arts lovers who often stop by the Singapore Tyler Print Institute (STPI) gallery for a fix of what's new on the scene are going to have to look elsewhere for a while.

It closes for renovations late next month, re-opening in June.

The institute itself will still operate fully. But the gallery upgrading, which is expected to cost close to $1 million and includes installing lighting and measures to control humidity levels, means no new exhibitions during that time.

This is the first major upgrade to the gallery since the STPI opened 11 years ago.
