Tracey Emin honoured with damehood


Tracey Emin has been honoured with a damehood in this year’s King’s Birthday Honours for her services to art. Previously appointed CBE in 2012, she told the BBC, 'Dame Tracey has a ring about it.’

The artist hopes that this honour signifies a change in the role of female artists, stating, ‘All the great female painters were wiped out of history. Well, now they’re coming back’. On accepting the damehood, Tracey remarked, ‘it gives me a louder voice to do the things that I think are important’.
