Sport stars break down in Senate hearings. A presidential race is derailed by a scream. Giddy video-game car thieves celebrate. From the rise of sensitive superheroes to the proliferation of mood-regulating drugs like Prozac, the concept and culture of emotion runs deeply through our experience of contemporary life and the images that we see. Getting Emotional presents the work of a diverse selection of artists for whom emotion is an important subject. The exhibition charts the profound attention paid to emotion by artists during the past decade and a half, while also including work from the 1960s to the 1980s that anticipates this recent exploration.
