Founded in 2012, The Institute for Art and Olfaction is a non-profit organization devoted to advancing public, artistic and experimental engagement with scent.
"The West Coast's first organization to explore perfume in a larger arts context", The Institute for Art and Olfaction (IAO) was founded in October 2012 by Saskia Wilson-Brown. The IAO opened its experimental studio to the public in downtown Los Angeles in March 2013, moving to Koreatown in March 2014 and to its home on Chung King Road in Chinatown, Los Angeles in March, 2015. The IAO was created to counterbalance what Wilson-Brown perceived as a lack of access and transparency in the fragrance industry.
In January 2014, the IAO launched its first large-scale public arts project with ‘A Trip to Japan in Sixteen Minutes, Revisited’ at the Hammer Museum. It has since collaborated with Zoe Crosher, Andrew Berardini, Austin Young, Marcos Lutyens, Victor Wilde (Bohemian Society), Bettina Hubby, dublab, Jo Burzynska, Cat Jones, Aleesa Cohene, Snowblink, Erik Benjamins, Maxwell Williams, The Institute for New Feeling, Hilda Kozarii, Mateo Tannat / Public Fiction, Seth Bogart, Christine Finley, Esmeralda Kosmatopoulous, and many more artists, writers and musicians.
In April 2014, the IAO held the first annual Art and Olfaction Awards, a yearly awards mechanism designed to help celebrate excellence in independent and artisan perfumery. The first two editions of the awards were held at Goethe Institute Los Angeles. The third annual awards were held at Hammer Museum, the fourth in Berlin at Silent Green Kulturquartier, and the fifth in London at The Tabernacle.
