YBA artist when you can be tracey emin

emin-neon.jpgthe white cube gallery reminds us there will be an oppor­tu­ni­ty to get to hear tracey emin, one of the most endur­ing, yet always among the most con­tro­ver­sial of the group of lon­don artists who came to be dubbed col­lec­tive­ly as YBAs back in the day. ms. emin her­self has some­how found her­self re-brand­ed in these few short years as an almost respectable grand-dame of the britart estab­lish­ment. she smiles from the pub­lic­i­ty shot for the event benign­ly, with a thought­ful fin­ger to her cheek, and the arched eye­brow, imply­ing some­one far removed from the days when she would wan­der on and off TV sets, too drunk to know where she was.

the event is spon­sored by time out and will con­cen­trate on her recent­ly pub­lished book ‘one thou­sand draw­ings’ and promis­es to reflect on how these works reflect the course of her life.
