The Esther M. Klein Art Gallery at the Science Center (Philadelphia) and the Monell Center have opened an exhibition called Odor Limits that explores the potential of smell in aesthetic experience. The works in this show employ natural, synthetic and imaginary scents to delve into pressing contemporary themes about cultural difference, personal identity, spirituality and the body. Using installation, video, performance and a visitor's interactive project, smell is shown to be one of the senses that defies limits, transgresses boundaries and exceeds expectations. The exhibition is open through June 28, 2008. For more information, visit www.kleinartgallery.org.
