Phyllis Lambert needs to brush up on her Aristotle

Howdy!

Got this in the mail yesterday.


The invitation to the CCA's next year long show. (If you haven't received yours, it is called "Sense of the City") Just from a quick scan of it, I can identify hearing, sight, touch, and smell.

As I far as I can remember, that Greek guy wrote that there are supposed to be at least five senses. Or am I mistaken, and in fact it is impossible to get a taste of a city?

Then again, perhaps Ms. Lambert is suffering from Synesthesia. Or maybe she should just talk with Gediminas Lankauskas who gave a presentation on the sense of taste "as non-narrative media for remembering (and forgetting) [a] nation's socialist past." At February's CONSERT conference on Sensory Collections and Display so that it doesn't happen again in the future.
