Mussai’s research-led curatorial work “encompasses the historical as well as the contemporary, engaging critically with the archive, [and] past and present image repertoires,” she said. “I believe in curatorial activism. For me, the provision of a critical context, to find a balance between aesthetics and politics is always key—to act with a sense of urgency, contemporary relevance, and a commitment to the future.”
