Event Details

Based on the classic block-stacking game, Progress: The Game of Leaders is a highly interactive sculpture that depicts Singapore’s current socio-political landscape. Through the form of a game, the artwork invites visitors to ponder some of the fundamental values necessary in the name of progress.

The blocks of Progress symbolise elements we’ve strengthened in order to build a first world country – the stacking of blocks simulates building skyscrapers with our own hands, much like how societies are constantly constructed and seeking upgrade. However, alongside progress, some compromises have to be made.
