The Mystery of Tears


A free admission event at part of Belfast Festival at Queen’s taking place at Belfast’s the MAC from October 18-27, The Mystery of Tears is a series of works “aimed to elicit a sincere and powerful shared response on the the part of the viewer”.

Examining the ability of various types of art to literally move one to tears, the exhibition also looks into “why we may have become culturally conditioned to express too readily, and without real or genuine empathy, our emotions and, in particular, our openness to the act of weeping.”

Admission is free so need to cry over entrance fees, etc. Cry... over entrance fees. Never mind, here’s Roy Orbison:
