Chandler Burr Curates Fragrance Museum Exhibit at MAD

Written by Jennifer Dublino, on November 15th, 2012

Chandler Burr, Curator of Olfactory Art, MADCelebrated fragrance critic and aficionado Chandler Burr is about to open “The Art of Scent,” an olfactory exhibit at the Museum of Arts & Design (MAD). Originally slated to open November 12 but delayed by Hurricane Sandy, the groundbreaking exploration of perfume as art form will now open on November 20th and run through February 24th.

The exhibition focuses on 12 different perfumes, from the 19th century to today and how a vastly expanded palette of available fragrance materials has affected the art of perfumery.

Although most museum exhibits focus on the visual and sometimes tactile, this one is purely about scent. The gallery is minimalist, with atomizers set into the walls allowing patrons to evaluate and appreciate each scent without the distraction of its branding or other stimuli. In addition to the sniffing of each fragrance, the exhibit will also include talks and workshops with acclaimed perfumers Yves Cassar and Carlos Benaim.

The purpose of the exhibit is to display and promote an awareness of perfumery as an art form on par with fine arts and design and to engender an appreciation of fragrance and its nuances.

See Chandler Burr in person at ScentWorld 2013, where he will be the keynote speaker at the Gala Awards Cocktail Party, February 7th. Register to attend here.
