Tracey Emin: Love is What You Want

Hayward Gallery

18 May – 29 August 2011, Hayward Gallery

Since the early 1990s, Tracey Emin has used her own life as the starting point for her art, exposing the intimate details of her personal history.

Disarmingly frank and yet often profoundly private, much of Emin’s art is animated by her playful and ironic wit.

This major retrospective exhibition featured painting, drawing, photography, textiles, video and sculpture, in works by turns tough, romantic, desperate, angry, funny and full of longing.

Seldom seen early works and recent large-scale installations were shown together with a new series of outdoor sculptures created especially for Hayward Gallery.

The exhibition was accompanied by a comprehensive monograph featuring texts by art historian Michael Corris, writer and academic Jennifer Doyle, Hayward Gallery curator Cliff Lauson, as well as a text by award-winning novelist Ali Smith.
