In the summer of 2020, Liu began an exhibition series at home and abroad to show his works engaging viewers in a discussion on issues emerging in the pandemic. The exhibition was held in Florence, Italy, Yukou and Yulin, both in Shaanxi province, and Yanggao of Shanxi province. Titled Ruowang: Coping with COVID-19, it is now on at Liu's Dudu Art Museum in Beijing displaying large-scale, eye-arresting paintings, installations and mixed-media works.
