The existence of MOST (Museum of Site) is emblematic of a parallel quality/ voice of our conventional culture, institution and museum. Andrew Lam, director of MOST, studied theory and history of art in Hong Kong and England‘s University of Cambridge (Cantab) and Victorian Society (London) and he initiated the collective MOST, which has been a community-cum-alternative space in Hong Kong since 1994. MOST represents an expanding glocal curatorial purview and innovative platform, aiming to advance insightful perspectives and projects for the art community in China and Hong Kong. Andrew Lam aims to re-contextualize exhibition/ performance art strategies, re-imagine new approach and design in global frameworks and conceive experimental curatorial and museum notions of glocalism which refreshes the many levels of physical and psychological, historical and cultural realities of the region. In the last 10 years, Andrew Lam has initiated a dynamic array of curatorial program for the Museum of Site, Hong Kong Museum of Medical Sciences and MOCA-China in the capacity of curator. Cross-media artist Prof. Andy Tam (Chair of Board of Directors, 2017) lectures in Hong Kong and Zhuhai (UIC_Hong Kong Baptist University/ Beijing University) and he collaborated with Andrew Lam as a duo in a great many international events of MOST, which are presented in the Hong Kong Art Biennale, Shenzhen Biennale of Contemporary Art, Kunming Biennale, Shenzhen-HongKong Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism and Architecture, Tashkent Biennale, Guangzhou Triennial, Guangxi Biennale, Gwangju Biennale (S Korea), MAPP Singapore, ARCO Madrid, Architecture Biennale Rotterdam (HSL), Triennial di Milano (HSL), Performance Art Festival IMAF (Novi Sad, Serbia), Berlin Performance Week (Berlin), Festival of Naked Forms FNAF (Praque), etc. MOST has also been engaging in dialogues with museums and institutions, including M+ Museum (Member of MAG), Education Commission (Sub-committee Member), Heritage Museum (Adviser and Jury) and Hong Kong Arts Development Council (Chairman of Art Education and Acting Chairman of Strategic and Development Board). MOST’s projects crossover art, architecture, theatre and art performance, trajectoring relational aesthetic and activism.
