Yet, what’s next? Is nearly to the age of national independence, it is the right time for NAG to explore the differences by exposing the work of the young artists. Malaysia has proved their emergence as a `trail’ layer in continuing the struggles to put Malaysia visual art scene into the high position.

Since early 90’s, the government started to
launch the campaign towards the development
country through several policies and program
such as Vision 2020 and putting an efforts for
becoming Malaysia as the MSC hub ( Multi
media Super Corridor). Both of the mega
campaign has developed various perception in
the society that comprises from every level
whether through its geographical, educational,
economy, social and religious
background and cultures. This mega campaign, more or less has an impact to the society lifestyles such as the globalization and the changing of agriculture to the industrialisation, in purpose to generate the national economy and also to ensure that the technology is the thing that everybody in the society must know and care about.
