Tracey Emin: The Memory Of your Touch

Tracey Emin: The Memory Of your Touch
Library Shelf Location 18.EMIN
Publication Date Oct 2018

British contemporary artist Tracey Emin planned and created the exhibition ‘The Memory of Your Touch’ after the passing of her mother in autumn 2016. Her new art is full of grief, mourning, and the longing for the touch of someone now absent. Emin is known for her autobiographical and confessional artwork, and she often uses the human figure to express emotion. The body she draws, paints, and models is her own, and the nude is at the heart of her acute engagement with the history of art – whether ecstatic, sensual, hungry, triumphant, agonised, or broken by grief. Rich with abstract, emotive expressions, this exhibition catalogue revolves around touch and memory.
