Names don’t come bigger in British contemporary art than Tracey Emin. Following a period of silence, the divisive Turner Prize winner has made a triumphant return with a collection of paintings, photos and sculptures in her signature confessional style. If Tracey’s iconic unmade bed told the story of rootlessness and anguish in one’s 30s, this show now explores the pains of growing older. A room full of selfies tells tales of insomnia, ageing, anxiety. Elsewhere, huge sculptures inspired by the recent death of her mother take personal trauma and put it centre stage. No stones are left unturned: her painful abortion, damaged relationship with her father, and loves lost are all addressed in a way which characteristically brings a titan of art into a very human sphere. Estimated dwell time: 1 hour
