TRACEY EMIN APPOINTED CBE IN NEW YEAR HONOURS LIST

Tracey Emin has been awarded a CBE by Queen Elizabeth for her contribution to the visual arts. The appointment follows two significant solo exhibitions in the UK and her participation in the preparation for the London 2012 Games. In May 2012 Turner Contemporary Margate presented She Lay Down Deep Beneath the Sea following the Hayward Gallery 2011 survey show Love is What You Want. Emin returned to Margate in July 2012 to carry the Olympic torch and designed a poster for the Olympic and Paralympic games. Emin met the Queen during her historic visit to Turner Contemporary in November 2011 and in May 2012 she drew the Queen for a special cover of the Financial Times Magazine to celebrate her diamond jubilee year.
