Tracey Emin

Tracey Emin is a notable and prolific British artist recognized for her place in the Young British Artists movement of the 1990s, and in particular for her provocative and controversial works such as Everyone I have ever slept with 1963-1995 and My Bed, which was on display at London's Tate Modern gallery as part of her nomination for the Turner Prize in 1999.

As illustrated in these works and others, Tracey Emin explores very personal and sometimes turbulent childhood experiences and sexual history in her art which is often described as confessional. These sources are reflected very literally, creating strikingly autobiographical pieces, the titles of which convey exactly what the viewer sees without veiling the works in metaphor or symbolism. She works in a wide variety of media including neon lighting, needle point, and photography.
