Tai Mitsuji is a writer and curator who is interested in disrupting the thematic and temporal modularity of art history. Rather than being pinned to a single era, his work seeks to track ideas across both time and culture – drawing a line, for instance, between the salons of 19th century France and the windows of department stores today. He holds a Masters (with Distinction) in History of Art from the University of Oxford, has taught Art History at the University of Sydney, and was recently awarded the Frank Knox Memorial Fellowship for his PhD at Harvard University. Alongside his academic pursuits, he works as an art critic publishing in a variety of prominent international and domestic publications, and was formerly the Deputy Chairperson of Runway Journal. Through this work, Mitsuji has continually sought to represent diverse perspectives and detail the various cultural contours of Australian and global communities.
