If you’ve managed to chow your way through our March Agenda already (good effort!), fear not… There’s plenty more on the cultural calendar to get your teeth stuck into. 

Our weekend pick? Tracey Emin’s latest emotive display at the White Cube Bermondsey. Executed in her usual autobiographical and confessional style, which has been a recurring theme ever since she first shook-up the art scene in the 1990s (as part of the Young British Artist movement with her first solo show in 1999) ‘A Fortnight of Tears’ focuses on the artist’s memories and emotions born from loss, pathos, anger and love. Most poignantly, the recently passing of her mother.

Working with a palette of visceral pink and red to allude to the journey between birth and death across a medley of sculptures, paintings, photography, drawings and neon art, the show arrives as an intense and insightful experience – where nothing is off limits and all is laid bare. Expect new paintings that focus on Emin’s own body as a conduit for her feelings, and 50 double-hung intimate self portraits, captured during bouts of insomnia. 

A Fortnight of Tears runs until 7 April, 2019 at White Cube Bermondsey, 144 – 152 Bermondsey Street, London, SE1 3TQ. All images via White Cube.
