Co-curator and artist Zoe Crosher creates a custom perfume individualized for each of the 10 locations of the exhibition. The scent reflects notes of a contemporary travelogue across country, ending in Los Angeles: Rubber, tar, dust, night-blooming jasmine. Each location has an altered formula to reflect the locations: Florida, orange blossom; Mobile, magnolia; New Orleans, moss; Houston, leather and white musk (truck stops); San Antonio, roses and gunpowder; El Paso, cactus; New Mexico, sage; Tucson, palo santo; Palm Springs, floral; Los Angeles (not yet created).
Perfume creation by the Institute for Art and Olfaction, in collaboration with Zoe Crosher.
