From 2011–15, he was Curator at the Guggenheim Museum New York, in charge of collections and exhibitions at Guggenheim-Bilbao, where he also founded the film and video gallery, exhibiting works by Christian Marclay, Ragnar Kjartansson, Rineke Dijkstra, Kimsooja, and Shahzia Sikander. From 2008 to 2011, he was Executive Director/Curator at Para/Site Art Space, Hong Kong. Before Hong Kong, between 2002 to 2008, he served in successive positions at Centro Atlántico de Arte Moderno (CAAM), Spain, as Curator, Chief Curator, and Acting Director, where he organized monographic exhibitions by Paul Klee, Jean Tinguely, Niki de Saint Phalle, and Joseph Kosuth, as well as group shows such as "Weather Report. Climate Change and Visual Arts," "Scrabble: Video, Language and Abstraction" and "¡Viva La Muerte! Art and Death In Latin America." In addition to his curatorial work, Fominaya has been a consultant lecturer at Sotheby’s Institute of Art, Singapore, adjunct lecturer on art markets at City University of Hong Kong's School of Creative Media, and program leader of the Para/Site Art Space-Hong Kong's Jockey Club Curatorial Training Program. He has regularly contributed to multiple international art publications. He completed the Postgraduate Program in Curatorial Studies at Fundación “la Caixa” in Barcelona. Hong Kong Coordinator Dr. Linda C.H. LAI (Project Experimenter @ Floating Projects) Linda Chiu-han LAI, Associate Professor in Intermedia Arts at the City University of Hong Kong’s School of Creative Media (SCM), is a research-based interdisciplinary artist. After completing her Ph.D. in Cinema Studies at New York University, she has sought meaningful connective extension to other relevant artistic and theoretical endeavors. She persists in artistic creation as the practice of theory. A critical researcher of the History of Everyday Life, her works focus on historiography, visual and auto-ethnography, urbanity and popular culture. Her teaching revolves around the criticality of micro/meta narrativity. She has also designed, at SCM, Hong Kong’s first courses in visual ethnography, sound art and generative art & literature at the university level. She founded the HK-based new media art group the Writing Machine Collective (2004) and has completed 6 major group exhibitions on questions of computational thinking and contemporary art. Though broadly known for her videography in the international art venues, she creates in different artistic mediums to turn art-making into criticism, history-writing, gaming and voyages of discovery. Her digital and non-digital works have been shown in key venues in many cities in Europe, Asia and the US, including the International Short Film Festival Oberhausen, the Open City London Documentary Festival, LOOP Barcelona, Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin, the Jihlava International Documentary Film Festival in the Czech Republic, the Fourth State of Water (CoCA, Torun, Poland), Women Make Waves Film Festival (Taipei), International Centre (New Delhi), and the various Experimental Film/Video Festivals in Seoul (EXiS), Taipei (EXiT), Macao (EXiM), Kuala Lumpur (KLEX) and Hong Kong (HKEX). Lai considers herself a montage artist: to her, images are intensely rich perceptual surfaces that defy the binary division of representation and abstraction. Many of her works also deploy the notion of an archive and self-archiving, including her large-scale installation “1906-1989-2012: Guangzhou-Hongkong-Shanghai-Anji,” commissioned for the 9th Shanghai Biennale 2012 at the Power Station of Contemporary Art, which is also a piece of experimental history playing with childhood memory, the use of everyday objects and folk material, the postal history of Hong Kong and family stories. Lai seeks for intermedia moments and modes of connectivity, be it conjugation, modulation, combinatorial logic, or permutation… Her recent projects include Mnemonic Archiving (Singapore 2016, Hong Kong 2017) and Lost Texture at H-Queen's "Exit Strategies." She is also working on a research project on HK's animation history with Winnie Yan and Terrie Cheung, and the Manifesto project on videography with Elaine Wong, Emilie Choi and Winsome Wong, both to advnce Floating Projects's scope of experiments. Floating Projects (2015- ) is her experiment on modes of sustainability in art-making and artists’ associations. 據點．句點 海外駐留支援計劃(2019秋) 申請募集 開始接受申請：2019年6月20日 截止申請日期：2019年7月3日 晚上11時59分 面試：2019年7月初 結果公佈：2019年7月14日 駐留日期： 2019年 十月 （C3A, 西班牙 哥多華 ) 1.計劃簡介 「據點・句點」將選出兩名本地藝術家前往西班牙 哥多華的 Centre for Contemporary Creation of Andalucia (C3A) 作為期一個月 （2019年10月）的合辦駐留計劃。 期望藝術家以研究為本的創作手法，並以實驗為態度，提交一個適合在C3A實踐的藝術計劃。 獲選藝術家將於C3A（西班牙）及「據點．句點」（香港）作公開口述匯報及展示作品的過程或成品。 C3A會提供兩個藝術家共用的工作室空間及基本電腦設備。詳情見下部5.2 關於Centre for Contemporary Creation of Andalucia (C3A): http://www.c3a.es/ 延伸閱讀： 1. 雲與橙 –海外駐留支援計劃 2019 西班牙 哥多華 C3A 匯報展覽 2. 哥多華當代美術中心漫遊紀錄:僅能拾起一個個隨街掉落的橙子 （第1期駐留藝術家回顧） 3. 哥多華當代美術中心創作紀錄：定睛眼前，凝視過去，觀望宇宙 （第1期駐留藝術家回顧）
