One of Tracey Emin’s most iconic and at the time controversial pieces first shown in the Turner Prize, My Bed is returning to Tate Britain after 15 years and will be shown along side a selection of six of her most recent drawings and two of her favourite paintings by Francis Bacon.
This display will form the highlight of the Tate’s newly rehang displays, open to the public on 31 March.
My Bed was first shown in the 1999 Turner Prize exhibition for which Emin was shortlisted. My Bed will feature along side a new display showing art from the 70s to the present day including works by Anish Kapoor, Gilbert and George, John Gerrard and Nicholas Pope.

Tracy made My Bed (no pun intended) in her Waterloo council flat in 1998 and which she refered to as an unconventional and uncompromising self-portrait. It feature the artist’s own stained bed sheets, discarded condom’s underwear and empty bottles of booze. This gives a candid snapshot of the artist’s life during the breakdown of a traumatic relationship and was shortlisted for the 1999 Turner Prize.
