Tracey Emin’s iconic and controversial installation My Bed will be on display alongside a collection of JMW Turner's seascapes and stormy skies, loaned from Tate’s collection and chosen by the artist.

About

My Bed famously features Emin’s own bed and gives a snapshot of her life after a traumatic relationship breakdown. It offers ‘an unconventional and uncompromising self-portrait through objects’, in which the artist herself is absent.

Originally made in Emin’s Waterloo council flat in 1998 and included in her Turner Prize exhibition in 1999, the bed is on long term loan to Tate following its purchase by a private collector in 2014.
