Artist Tracey Emin to Establish Art School, Residency Program in Margate
Turner Prize–nominated artist Tracey Emin will establish an art school and museum in her seaside hometown of Margate, England.
She plans to house the school, titled TKE Studios, in a former bathhouse and mortuary located near her 30,000-square-foot studio, which was formerly a commercial printer. The Times of London first reported news of the school on Wednesday.
Emin’s plan for the school’s redesign will see 30 affordable studios erected for its enrolled students. The mortuary will be converted into a small museum that is set to house a collection of Emin’s own work.
