Taiwan’s National Cultural Award ceremony was held at the Executive Yuan on April 27, 2017. Liu Kuo-sung, artist Cheng Shan-hsi and director Tsai Ming-liang were recipients for this year. Premier Lin Chuan and the Minister Cheng of the Ministry of Culture personally addressed the event and commended Liu Kuo-sung for his contributions to the modernization of Chinese ink painting. Liu Kuo-sung, however, was a bit under the weather and his daughter Liu Lin-hui accepted the honor and expressed thanks on his behalf.
