Tracey Emin/Edvard Munch

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
The highlights of London’s art exhibitions in 2019 included the British Museum’s Edvard Munch: Love & Angst and White Cube’s Tracey Emin: A Fortnight of Tears. Fast forward to 2020 and the Royal Academy has a show of not one, but both! Emin – perhaps unsurprisingly – is a long-term fan of the Norweigan Expressionist. In 1988, she created a film work titled ‘For Edvard Munch and All My Dead Children’ that opened with a clip of Emin at the same Oslo Fjord as Munch painted several of his best-known works. Emin’s recent artworks have been pretty much brilliant across the board, and this exhibition will show how Munch has long been an inspiration to her.
