Born in 1963, Emin is a leading figure of the Young British Artists movement - a loose group of visual artists who began exhibiting together in London in 1988.

Her Rome exhibition comprises recent works including new paintings, sculptures, neon, large-scale embroideries and a series of works on paper.
