Tracey Emin (b. 1963) is known for her dynamic and autobiographical works that express themes of love, loss, hope, and grief. With honesty and deep feeling, her art draws on her personal experiences of illness, intimacy, and sexuality to confront broader concerns about women’s bodies and health.
The first major presentation of Emin’s work in a North American museum, this exhibition features paintings, drawings, and sculptures from 2007—when Emin increasingly embraced painting as her primary medium—to the present. Together, the works demonstrate the artist’s unflinching commitment to challenging conceptions of female experience.
