Participating Spaces are museums, commercial galleries, non-profits, artist-run spaces, corporate spaces, and retail establishments that choose to exhibit photographic art as part of the FOTOFEST Biennial. Participating Spaces participate in the oldest and longest-running photographic event in the United States.

The FOTOFEST2008 Biennial had two themes, CHINA and TRANSFORMATIONS. More than 80 spaces chose to follow one of the two themes. CHINA has become one of the major forces in the world. Not only shaping their own society and economy, but changing global economy as well. The broad theme of TRANSFORMATIONS can be interpreted however artists and curators would like to represent it. It could relate to politics, urban environments, physical or psychological metamorphosis, passage of time, architecture, war, technological change, and history.

Exhibitions were located throughout Houston, with clusters of exhibits in the Warehouse Districts, Downtown, Midtown-Third Ward, Museum District, Montrose, Washington Street Corridor, The Heights, Upper Kirby-Colquitt and the Heights.
