In the exhibition Nez à nez– Contemporary perfumers, we follow the trajectory and creative processes of those working in the complex and demanding world of perfumery. The aim is to give the public access to some of the insider secrets of a creative medium that touches us all. At mudac, the idea of an exhibition on perfumery was long in the works. [...]
To show just how complex and diverse the world of perfumery is, the exhibition spotlights the creations of thirteen perfumers from various countries and backgrounds: men and women, at different stages of their careers, working independently, as head of their own brand or for a perfume house. We teamed up with the perfumers themselves and the experts from the specialist magazine Nez to select three fragrances by each creator to feature in the exhibition.
— Nez à nez is open through 16 June at Mudac, Musée de design et d’arts appliqués contemporains in Lausanne, Switzerland; more here.
This is an impressive group and I’d love to see the olfactory installations! I have a good friend writing a book about smell in art, so I forwarded this to him.
I’d love to see it too, sounds like a great exhibit.
These interesting sounding olfactory exhibits always seem to be in Europe, so no chance of me getting to see one of them. I wish something like this could come to Houston.
