Site-specific art by Ana Pérez-Quiroga, Ana Rocha de Sousa, Error-43, and perfumer Cláudia Camacho will also be presented. As an exhibition in which a dialogue between art and science plays a fundamental role, several interactive installations of a ludic-educational nature have been created to refer to the functioning of the brain and its senses, as well as audio-visual content by authors such as Lori Malépart-Traversy, Rachel E. Gross, Rankin & Trisha Ward, Daphné Leblond & Lisa Billuart Monet, and Erika Lust.

The exhibition explores the theme of Amor Veneris (the clitoris) from an artistic and scientific perspective, seeking to provide an educational, provocative and irreverent experience. Amor Veneris — A Journey into Female Sexual Pleasure also aims to lead the public to reflect on the relevance of female sexual pleasure, and on fundamental issues such as consent, sexual violence against women, and the female sexual response, among other concepts that are inseparable from the experience of sexuality.
