Ever wondered what artists do all day?  Watch this great little BBC documentary on YBA artist Tracey Emin to find out. 

 

Tracey Emin What Do Artists Do All Day?

 

The documentary follows Emin during the lead up to her collaborative exhibition, which is currently on display in The Leopold Museum, Vienna until 15th September 2015.  The exhibition features over 80 works by Emin alongside the Austrian expressionist artist Egon Schiele.  Emin describes how Schiele has been one of her greatest artistic influences, which becomes very apparent during the film.

The work of Emin continues to lay bare her most intimate feelings of hope, humiliations, failures and successes which echo the sensibilites of the expressionist movement.  All elements which feature in her beautiful new print "Believe in the Extraordinary" currently available at the Loughran Gallery.
