A new exhibition at your AGA!

September 17 - December 31

Scents of Movement, Scents of Place is an olfactory exhibition that uses scents as artwork. Experience scents that relate to travel, migration, immigration, navigation, and transportation. There are scents of places that will be familiar, unfamiliar, reachable and unreachable. It includes scents from very specific times and places as well as smells of imaginary, otherworldly and mundane places. 

Scents of Movement, Scents of Place touches on broad notions of life, death, myriad world views, subjectivity, colonization and what we can know through our nose.

This exhibition is proudly sponsored by CIBC
