DEPT. OF LOVE: LOVE LETTERS, 2022-2023
Love Letters is a series of epistolary commissions by international artists and writers. Twelve contributors were invited to write a love letter to someone, something, or some time. Developed especially for the project, each new love letter will be published monthly between November 2022 - October 2023.
Readers are invited to subscribe to our mailing list and receive one letter a month via email.
