Sotheby's Talks: Tracey Emin CBE RA and Simon Shaw on Edvard Munch's Women

London | 23 February 2023

This spring, Sotheby’s (Women) Artists will feature a dynamic program of free exhibitions and events celebrating long undervalued female creativity.


Edvard Munch’s pursuit of emotional truth changed art forever. In the first of the Sotheby’s Talks this spring, entitled Breathe and Feel, Suffer and Love, artist Tracey Emin and Sotheby’s Simon Shaw explore how women shaped this quest, at a time when relations between the sexes were changing radically. They ask why Munch’s questions are more compelling than ever today.
