Claim a permanent space for photography arts.

DECK Photography Art Centre is a non-profit arts entity founded in 2014 on the collective effort of a group of passionate artists, designers, public members, and like-minded people. DECK’s first container-building at 120A Prinsep Street was made possible because of the goodwill shown towards it by those who shared our vision for an independent art space.

Today, DECK enters a new phase of growth with another unprecedented project - to construct Singapore’s first purpose-built arts centre for photography from the ground up. Our goal is to break new ground and create new possibilities for artists, for art lovers, and for the community.

DECK is the embodiment of possibilities. It represents the diversity in an ecosystem that is shaping the arts in Singapore and Southeast Asia.

In April 2021, DECK’s temporary container art centre reached the end of its lifespan and was demolished to charter a new horizon for photography and media arts. Rebuilding from the ground up as a brick-and-mortar building, the expanded space will house more showcases, incubate experimental ideas, nurture new talents and provide more opportunities for mid-career and ground-breaking artists.
