Tracey Emin art & media across the UK
Check out the impact just nine quotes attributed to an artist, just 228 words, can have, which of course is less than half the words on some press releases. These nine quotes with 69 media outlet placements, multiplied by the readership, spotlight just one micro-sample of Tracey Emin’s media power.

For now however, we offer you a little window into media coverage, Tracey Emin & Co.-style, via an estimated 69/25000 or 0.28% to date. What you see below is actually far less of a percentage when taking into account the column inches of the diversified publicity outputs.
