The exhibition ‘It smells like… flowers & fragrances’, on view at me Collectors Room in Berlin from 14 April to 1 July 2018, reveals the undiminished potential of the visually rich subject of depictions of flowers and the subversive olfactory power of fragrances in contemporary art. The curator is Dr Heike Fuhlbrügge.
The new exhibition at Tate Britain bringing in a master chocolatier, a scent expert and an audio specialist wants to change the way people interact with the paintings. Once again the new sensorium is widely covered by the media. It seems as if the cultural domain is deeply longing for this sensorial opening.
