‘The Art of Scent’ at Teşvikiye Gallery
The exhibition focuses on 12 iconic scents including “Chanel N ̊ 5” by Ernest Beaux, “Jicky” by Aimé Guerlain, “Aromatics Elixir” by Bernard Chant and “Light Blue” by Olivier Cresp. From these scents, it situates the history of scent within a larger aesthetic and historical context of major art mediums - from painting and sculpture to architecture and music.
The exhibition was previously displayed at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York.
It was opened in Istanbul on March 23 with the attendance of Chandler Burr, the curator in charge and the founder of the Department of Scent Art at the Museum of Arts and Design. It will continue to be on view until April 13.
