About the event

ABOUT THE SPEAKER:  French by upbringing, Cuban and English by blood, and American by birth, Saskia Wilson-Brown obtained her BA at UC Berkeley, and her MA (Fine Art) at Central Saint Martins College in London. She went on to spend several years lifting heavy objects in the wee morning hours as an art department PA, before co-directing LA's short-lived but very cool Silver Lake Film Festival. After her one and only corporate job running international filmmaker outreach at Al Gore’s Current TV,  her interest in multivalent practices led her to create The Institute for Art and Olfaction (IAO) in 2012, a non-profit devoted to access and experimentation in perfumery and olfactory art. Through the IAO, she has launched projects with institutions such as Pulitzer Foundation, Getty Institute, Hammer Museum, Wallace Collection, and many more. In 2013, she launched the Art and Olfaction Awards, an international awards mechanism for independent perfumers, and in 2018 she launched Open Sourcing Smell Culture, an initiative devoted to open source principles in perfumery. In 2019/20 she served as a visiting lecturer at the Royal College of Art in London, and in 2020/22 she was invited as a Ballen Scholar at New Mexico Highlands University. Saskia's current projects include hosting a radio show and podcast called Perfume on the Radio for Lookout FM in Los Angeles, and pursuing a PhD at University College Dublin exploring the historic and contemporary relationship between perfume, access and power.
