'The (censorship) issue is larger than just a few artworks or a single exhibition, or one particular artist’s practice. The issue is in the integrity of the arts in Malaysia, and the process by which it is served by public institutions,' says Fuad. Photo: The Star/Ong Soon Hin

Four artworks from acclaimed Malaysian contemporary artist Ahmad Fuad Osman’s solo exhibition At The End Of The Day Even Art Is Not Important (1990-2019) at the National Art Gallery (NAG) in Kuala Lumpur have been taken down.

In an open letter released on Feb 10, Fuad has requested that the entire exhibition, spanning three decades of his career, be closed immediately.
