Spend the afternoon at ICA exploring the themes and science behind Sissel Tolaas’s work! Test and visualize your own sense of smell in a nose print workshop, listen to poetry readings about smell and memory, and tour the exhibition with chemosensory scientists from Monell Chemical Senses Center as your guides. Themed snacks and beverages will also be available from local vendors.



Note: masks are required for all registrants attending in person programs. Please contact Brittany Clottey at with any questions.
