In April this blog has announced on first hand the opening of Chandler Burr's Scent Exhibition at MAD NYC - Click HERE to read all about it, and click HERE to read more detailed information from the NEW YORK TIMES). The opening was scheduled for NOV, 13 but sadly, due to Sandy, it was postponed to NOV, 20 as he told me and as the NYT informs. The museum website gives a different date - NOV, 29th, so please call the museum to be sure of the date of the opening!
The catalogue will be sold for $250. There are only 1,000 catalogues, so if you are interest, you should hurry! Members of the museum will get 5% discount only.
The catalogue will have 11 of the 12 works of olfactory art that will be presented at the exhibition— Only Chanel Nº5 was not included, but don’t ask me why – Chandler did not tell me.
We are also not sure if the catalogue can be shipped internationally, so this info must be checked by contacting the museum.
About the catalogue flacons - Each work comes in a 5ml vial.
I have received a preview of the catalogue, so I am posting here for you guys to have a general idea – one of more details might change a bit, according to Chandler.
