This mural responds to the redevelopment of the Singapore Art Museum buildings, making a bold declaration that conveys the artist’s hopes for what the Museum of the future may bring. It invites viewers to look more closely to discover the vibrant motifs within it that symbolise a diverse range of communities in Singapore. Lo encourages viewers to obliterate the “CON” in the statement with stickers, and in doing so presents a thought-provoking and empowering revelation: the future may be uncertain, but the power to shape it lies in each of our hands.
OUR FUTURE IS IN(CON)CLUSIVE reflects a desire for a more socially conscious and inclusive society, a recurring theme in Lo’s practice that both stems from and acknowledges their lived experience as a member in a diverse community.
Lo’s work is participatory in nature – visitors are encouraged to obliterate the “CON” in the statement with limited-edition stickers designed by the artist. In doing so, they are presented
with a thought-provoking and empowering revelation: the future may be uncertain, but the power to shape it lies in each of our hands. The stickers can be redeemed at the Queen
