"The Fear of Smell and the Smell of Revolution: Contemporary Olfactory Arts"

Brown Bag Program presented by Larry Shiner PhD, UIS Professor Emeritus of Philosophy

Wednesday, January 17, Noon-1:00 pm

Research & Collections Center

1011 E. Ash St., Springfield, IL

Free and open to the public

Since the millennium, there has been an increase in the number of artists using smell in their art. Recently this phenomenon became the subject of a significant exhibition on olfactory arts at Museum of Art and Design in New York. Dr. Shiner, author of "The Invention of Art," will present a brief survey of contemporary olfactory art and share his research in preparation for his upcoming book on the subject of olfactory art. He will discuss firsthand experiences with the art of smell, and debate the question of whether or not perfume should be considered an art form.

 

Bring your lunch and join us for a different speaker and topic on the third Wednesday of each month. Brown Bag Lectures are held at the ISM Research & Collections Center at 1011 E. Ash St. in Springfield. For additional information, please contact events@illinoisstatemuseum.org or (217) 558-6696.
