Artist Tracey Emin: "It Was Always About Sex, Not Money"

Writers and artists in the “confessional” mode are often accused of being narcissistic and self-indulgent. This may be true for certain male memoirists like James Frey (A Million Little Pieces), but I think we so rarely get accounts of women’s real lives that, self-indulgent or not, I welcome art and writing by women that gives me a window into their experience.

Take Tracey Emin, an English multimedia artist who often incorporates details about her sex life into her work. Her exhibit “Those Who Suffer Love” in London at White Cube ends in a few days, and for those of us who can’t be there to see her envelope-pushing work, we can take a look at what’s in the exhibit, as well as work that made her famous.
