An Olfactory Archive: 1738-1969 (Test Sites Symposium exhibition)
In conjunction with the symposium Test Sites: Experiments in the History of Space the Architecture Division at California College of the Arts is presenting the exhibition An Olfactory Archive: 1738-1969.

It's the first exhibition devoted exclusively to the recent works of artisans and historians who harness scents, essences, and fragrances in the reconstruction and preservation of historical spaces.

This exhibition displays several examples of this recent work, creating a brief image of some possible and future archive of an olfactory past.
