4 December 2013 - 9 March 2014
Opening on the eve of Art Basel Miami Beach 2013 'Tracey Emin: Angel Without You' is the first-ever exhibition to focus on the artist's neon works, a crucial aspect of the artist’s practice that began with her iconic The Tracey Emin Museum (1995), which opens the exhibition at The Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami. The exhibition curated by Bonnie Clearwater, explores how Emin’s neons have played an essential role in the development of her work.
The exhibition continues Emin's longstanding relationship with MOCA by featuring Why I Never Became a Dancer (1995) from the museum's own collection and the first ever of Emin's works to be purchased by an American museum. The film, which contains scenes from Emin’s childhood home in the British seaside resort town of Margate, will feature alongside several of Emin’s most notable neon works, such as Sorry Flowers Die (1999) and I can feel your smile (2005).
'Tracey Emin: Angel without You' comprises more than 60 works from the past two decades. The exhibition title is drawn from a new large-scale neon work by Emin, on view in MOCA’s courtyard during the exhibition.
