Tracey Emin in conversation with Courtney Willis Blair



7 November 2023

The Prince George Ballroom, New York

On the occasion of her major solo exhibition at White Cube New York, Tracey Emin will be in conversation with Courtney Willis Blair, US Senior Director, White Cube, at The Prince George Ballroom.

‘Lovers Grave’ is the inaugural solo exhibition at White Cube’s New York gallery at 1002 Madison Avenue. Emin’s first show in the city in almost 8 years brings together new paintings completed in her studios in London and Margate, UK. One of the most compelling and singular artists of our times, Emin looks to her life for her primary source material, drawing on themes of love, desire, loss and grief to create works that are disarmingly and unashamedly emotional.

Built in 1904 as one of New York’s premier hotels, after many years of neglect the Prince George Ballroom was rehabilitated by the non-profit charity Breaking Ground. It reopened in 1999 to provide 416 units of affordable housing for low-income and formerly homeless adults and persons living with HIV/AIDS. The now restored Neo-Renaissance ballroom channels all rental proceedings into support for the non-profit charity’s housing development and outreach programmes for homeless and other vulnerable New Yorkers.

In conversation followed by audience Q&A. Doors at 6.30pm, talk starting promptly at 7pm.

Please note that the talk is now fully subscribed. To join the waiting list, please RSVP to
