Tracey Emin: Love Is What You Want

45.00

Tracey Emin (b. 1963) is one of Great Britain's best-known and most controversial artists. Published to accompany the first major survey exhibition of her work at a public gallery in London since her rise to prominence in the 1990s, this book brings together suites of works from across the artist's career emphasising the diversity of her dynamic practice. It spotlights her achievements in a wide variety of media, including sculpture, drawing, painting, text-based works, photographs, video and performance. Since she first emerged in the early 1990s, Emin has made art that takes as its starting point the most harrowing and intimate details of her personal history. Sometimes confrontational or sexually provocative, her art resonates with the 'personal political' legacy of feminist art while at the same time speaking to relationships in general, as well as exploring spirituality, cultural identity, class and celebrity. Disarmingly frank and often deeply confessional, much of Emin's art is also animated by her playful and ironic wit. The book is conceived and produced in close collaboration with the artist and designed by Graphic Thought Facility, London

Paperback. 260 pages.
