Art star 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 notorious Sensation exhibition and My 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. This book presents Emin's art in clear, accessible language, with full-color reproductions throughout. It provides a highly informed key to understanding one of the most hotly discussed artists at work today, responsible for some of the most iconic works of recent times.
