Tracey Emin by Neal Brown

Book Description

Tracey Emin (b. 1963) first came to public attention in the 1990s, with her provocative and confrontational works. After the inclusion of the controversial "Everyone I Have Ever Slept With" in the Royal Academy's Sensation exhibition, and "The Bed" in The Turner Prize exhibition in 1999, she achieved a level of fame and notoriety unparalleled for an artist in recent times. Emin's use of intensely personal, everyday materials gives her work an intimate quality, combining avant-garde ideas with feminine traditions of craft. Emin challenges the boundaries of both artistic practice and social convention, parodying and flaunting her status as a celebrity phenomenon. Following on from her highly successful memoir, this book presents Emin's art in clear accessible language, with full-colour reproductions throughout. Neal Brown's text, which includes interviews with Emin, as well as her own writings, provides a key to understanding one of the most visible and hotly discussed contemporary artists at work today, responsible for some of the most iconic works of recent times.
