He will be the curator of the first international large-scale exhibition of public installationsin Beijing for the 2008 Summer Olympic Games. Fung was also chosen as curator for the 2008-2009 SITE Santa Fe Biennial exhibit, which begins in the summer of 2008. When asked about his professional life in the arts, Fung humorously describes it as "total dedication, chastity and poverty."
