Tracey Emin: Love is What You Want
Southbank Centre, Belvedere Road, London, United Kingdom
"Tracey Emin: Love is What You Want" will be the first major survey in London of the work of one of the UK's most renowned and celebrated artists. Occupying both floors and two outdoor sculpture terraces, the exhibition will feature key works from all periods of the artist's career including seldom-seen early works and more recent large-scale installations as well as a new series of outdoor sculptures created especially for the Hayward. The exhibition will feature key works from all periods of her career and in all media, including painting, textiles, works on paper, photography, neon, film and sculpture. Works will be arranged either thematically or juxtaposed to invite new readings of her work. Highlights include a concentrated presentation of most famous appliqué blankets such as Hotel International (1993) and Psyco Slut (1999), a darkened room showcasing over a dozen neon works alongside videos, and a large room of recent works in a lighter palette that tend toward abstraction. The exhibition is co-curated by Dr Cliff Lauson, Curator, and Ralph Rugoff, Director, Hayward Gallery.
