Noor Ibrahim Visual Art Studio was founded in 2004 to accommodate the creative practice of artist Noor Ibrahim. After several years developing his studio practice, he created another institution in the same Southwestern area of Yogyakarta in 2012 named Pintu Miring Art Space. Ibrahim fostered an international network through this organization, developing an international residency program and exhibitions including the Terracotta Biennale, which has become one of its most important programs.
