9781853322938: Tracey Emin: Love Is What You Want

Since she first emerged in the early 1990s as a member of a generation later tagged “the Young British Artists,” Tracey Emin (born 1963) has made art that takes as its starting point the most harrowing and intimate details of her personal history. Published for a major exhibition at the Hayward Gallery in London, Tracey Emin: Love Is What You Want brings together suites of works from across the artist's career, spotlighting her achievements in a wide variety of media, including sculpture, drawing, painting, text-based works, photographs, video and performance. Sometimes confrontational or sexually provocative, Emin's art resonates with the “personal is political” legacy of feminist art, while simultaneously speaking to relationships in general, as well as exploring spirituality, cultural identity, class and celebrity. Disarmingly frank and often deeply confessional, Emin's art is also animated by her playful and ironic wit, as this new survey monograph indicates.
