TRACEY EMIN

Biography

Artist Detail Image

 

Tracey Emin, an artist of British Romani and Turkish Cypriot origin, has been noted for her provocative and sexually explicit work for decades.  Emin emerged in the late 1980s, during the "Young British Artists" movement, with controversial pieces such as "Everyone I Have Ever Slept With 1963-1995," "My Bed" and "The Last Thing I Said To You is Don't Leave Me Here." Throughout her career, she has produced a variety of works ranging from paintings and textiles to sculpture and video, many of which reflect her troubled childhood and teenage years. In 2007, Emin was inducted into the Royal Academy of Arts in London, and in 2011, she was appointed as a professor of drawing. She has exhibited extensively internationally, with solo shows at the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, Haus der Kunst, Munich, Modern Art Oxford, Art Gallery of New South Wales, Platform Garanti Contemporary Art Center, Istanbul, and Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.
