Taipei, Oct. 18 (CNA) National Palace Museum (NPM) officials said Tuesday that the museum has asked for a correction after the sponsor of the Global Fine Art Awards nominated one of its exhibitions, but described the nationality as “China (中國).”
Portrayals from a Brush Divine: A Special Exhibition on the Tricentennial of Giuseppe’s Arrival in China was held last year to celebrate its 90th anniversary.
But the sponsor, Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization, listed the NPM as being in China on its official website.
Museum officials said they have asked the sponsor for a speedy change from China to “Republic of China (Taiwan).”
Inclusion in the award does not come from registration, but is decided by the sponsor. [SOURCE]
