Art in Smog offers an intimate encounter with four artists and a curator in China, as they pursue their dreams over 25 years of rapid change. Vivid art merges with thoughtful voices to evoke the human pursuit of meaning. Featured are international artists Su Xinping and Xia Xiaowan, painter and antiques connoisseur Mushi, brash curator Cui Cancan, and painter Chen Hui, who expresses a woman’s sense of life in the fast lane.

The pursuit of art takes them from quiet lives in the 1990s to the extremes of the 2000s to their different paths forward today. Three of the main characters were first filmed in Beijing in 1991, and archival footage provides visual evidence of China’s dramatic transformation.
