This exhibition from Oslo’s Munch Museum will reveal Tracey Emin’s long-held fascination with Edvard Munch.

Tracey Emin took an interest in Munch from a young age: 'I’ve been in love with this man since I was 18.'

Throughout her career, Emin has been drawn to Munch’s expressionism and shares his concern with exploring the complexity of the human psyche. As early as 1998, Emin referenced Munch in both the title and location of the film work HOMAGE TO EDVARD MUNCH AND ALL MY DEAD CHILDREN, which opens with a naked Emin curled in a foetal position on a wooden jetty on the edge of the Oslo Fjord in Asgardstrand where Munch painted several well-known works.

This exhibition will reveal the way in which Munch has been a constant inspiration and will showcase Emin’s wide-ranging skills as an artist.
