Special Program, Exclusive to the National Council
Please join us online for a live Q&A with British artist Tracey Emin CBE RA.
Members will have the chance to engage directly with Emin and her practice, as she welcomes questions from the viewers.
A rare opportunity allowing participants to gain access into Emin’s private London studio, the event will be hosted on Zoom where we invite the audience to turn their cameras on and interact with the artist. Anderson Ranch Artistic Director of Painting, Drawing & Printmaking, Liz Ferrill will host this event alongside Tracey.
Please note that this event will not be recorded!
This is your only chance to engage with Tracey and experience this special event, as you won’t get the opportunity to view the talk at a later date.
