ANAMED's 2016 exhibition "Scent and the City" opened in Ankara with the collaboration of Koç University’s Vehbi Koç Ankara Studies Research Center (VEKAM) and the Erimtan Archaeology and Art Museum. The “Scent and the City" exhibition invites visitors to use their noses to discover the worlds of the civilizations that once lived in Anatolia. More than 50 scents will be exhibited until March 31st, at the Erimtan Archaeology and Art Museum, including historically significant scents such as saffron, frankincense, and agarwood, and modern-day scents such as cologne, linden trees, and burning coal.
The exhibition is curated by Dr. Lauren Nicole Davis, teaching assistant at the Department of Archaeology and History of Art at Koç University. The exhibition is designed by Cem Kozar and Işıl Ünal from PATTU Architecture. The scents of the exhibition were prepared by MG Gülçiçek International Fragrance Company. The exhibition draws from literature, rituals, traditions, and the economy to focus on scents that were prominent in Anatolia.
