Executive director, Para Site
Romanian-born writer and curator Cosmin Costinas is one of the most influential tastemakers in Hong Kong’s art scene. As executive director and curator of Para Site, a Hong Kong-based non-profit organisation dedicated to contemporary visual-art exhibitions, he not only runs the institution but plays an important role in developing a critical understanding of local and international phenomena in art and society. In addition, Cosmin is a member of Erste Foundation’s Patterns advisory board, a transnational programme that supports contemporary culture, and Asia’s first Outset curator of contemporary art. He also contributes to numerous magazines, books and exhibition catalogues around the world.
