This is my personal website, where I will be blogging my responses and thoughts on art, China, documentaries, museums, globalism, cultural identity, and other topics I’m passionate about. Please comment and share your ideas with me.
I am currently completing a documentary project called “Art in Smog,” which examines the cultural dilemmas explored by visual artists in Beijing. The main characters, who were first profiled 25 years ago in my earlier documentary Inner Visions: Avant-Garde Art in China, are now in their 40s and 50s. They have experienced China’s transformation from the revolutionary, idealistic, and isolated country of their childhood years to the high-tech, global, and money-focused society today. What can we learn from their lives and their art? I will be sharing my progress in the documentary posts on this blog.
