The Crown Letter

Corona weekly diary - Perspectives of women artists from all over the world

The Crown Letter is a collective online art project, initiated by the French artist Natacha Nisic in April 2020 in response to the Coronavirus pandemic. Nisic, a former artist in residence at the Villa Kujoyama, sent an invitation to women artists around the world to contribute to a collective online journal, a platform for art in a time of isolation. Each week, the artists post a new edition of the Crown Letter and hold an online salon, to discuss art and life and support each other. The Crown Letter exhibited in the Bienalsur in Argentina and Uruguay, and with curation of Photo Days in France in 2021. And now, the French Institute of Japan – Kansai presents an exhibition of The Crown Letter: an archive of the present, a testimony to the experiences of women artists during the Covid-19 pandemic.
