Overview

Generously illustrated, accessible, and affordable, the Modern Artists series is an essential reference for all those interested in contemporary visual culture.

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.
