The RCA/Outset Visual Cultures Lecture Series: Sissel Tolaas19. Feb - 19. Feb 13 / ended Royal College of Art, Dyson Building
Free admission, places are limited so early arrival is advised.
The fifth lecture in this series supported by the Outset Contemporary Art Fund is by Sissel Tolaas. Born in Norway and based in Berlin, she studied mathematics, chemical science, languages, and visual arts. Tolaas has dedicated her life to something we all take for granted: the sense of smell. Obsessively researching and exploring our most primal and yet unnoticed sense in all its facets, Tolaas has shared her research in many ways: from research projects with hospitals and institutions such as MIT or Harvard, to commercial projects for the likes of Adidas, Comme des Garçons and Louis Vuitton, to art exhibitions at the MoMA New York or the Third Berlin Biennial. Tolaas is fiercely passionate and outspoken on the power of smell, and how paying greater attention to it might just change our lives.
