The exhibition features over 25 works by Tracey Emin, including paintings that will be on display for the first time, neon installations and sculptures. These works, exploring the loneliness of the soul, were chosen by the artist to be placed alongside an elaborate selection of 18 paintings and watercolors from the rich collection and archives of MUNCH in Oslo, Norway.
Tracey Emin has been a major figure in contemporary art for over 25 years; Edvard Munch was the pioneer of a radical new style known as Expressionism. In this landmark exhibition, Tracey Emin selects Edvard Munch's masterpieces to display alongside her latest paintings. Tracy has long been fascinated by the Norwegian expressionist and author of The Scream: in her words, "I've been in love with this man since I was eighteen." In 1998, she even created a spectacular video, filmed at the same Oslo marina, from where many of his famous works were written. This is just one example of how she, like Munch, uses the most painful experiences to create works of art.
