ISTANBUL'74 will get ready for a very special and extraordinary exhibition that opens March 23 as part of the opening of A Journal, the new online platform of Akbank Private Banking, at Teşvikiye Gallery.
"The Art of Scent 1889-2012" exhibition opens tomorrow, asking the question "Is scent an art?" Featuring 12 important pieces, such as Ernest Beaux's Chanel N ̊5, Aime Guerlain's Jicky, Bernard Chant's Aromatics Elixir and Olivier Cresp's Light Blue, the exhibition positions the history of scents and perfumes in the historical and aesthetic context of the disciplines, such as painting, sculpture and music.
Exhibited at the Museum of Art and Design in New York for the first time and focusing on the artistic aspect of scent, "The Art of Scent 1889-2012" will host Chandler Burr, who is the founder of the Department of Scent Art at the Museum of Arts and Design, and who is the curator of the exhibition.
