Sissel Tolaas: The Fear of Smell, the Smell of Fear Norway-born "olfactivist" Sissel Tolaas collected sweat from nine men who had been put into fear-inducing situations. She then synthetically reproduced their sweat pheromones and embedded them into paint applied to Grand Arts' walls in nine off-white, 5-foot-by-8-foot panels. Patrons scratch and sniff, and the smells recall people and places (such as the sour milk and dishwashing soap in a second-grade cafeteria). It's an intimate and vulnerable experience. Plastic bottles on a shelf allow the fearful to take in the art cosmetics-counter style. Be advised: No. 7 is a little funky. Through March 10 at Grand Arts, 1819 Grand, 816-421-6887. (Ray T.
