Tracy Emin @ Royal Academy
15 November 2020 - 28 February 2021
In this landmark exhibition, Tracey Emin selects masterpieces by Edvard Munch to show alongside her most recent paintings.
The exhibition features more than 25 of Emin’s works including paintings, some of which will be on display for the first time, plus neons and sculpture. These works, which explore The Loneliness of the Soul, were chosen by Emin to sit alongside a carefully considered selection of 19 oils and watercolours drawn from MUNCH’s rich collection and archives in Oslo, Norway.
This is an opportunity to see Emin’s work in a highly personal show. The selection reveals not only how Munch has been a constant inspiration – particularly through his profound portrayals of women – but also showcases Emin’s wide-ranging skills as an artist, which often interweave painting, drawing and writing.
Seen together, the dark territories and raw emotions that both artists navigate will emerge as a moving exploration of grief, loss and longing.
