Tracey Emin made My Bed 1998 in her Waterloo council flat in 1998. Emin’s own bed covered in stained sheets, discarded condoms, underwear and empty bottles of alcohol created an unconventional self-portrait, which was shortlisted for the 1999 Turner Prize. The Duerckheim Collection acquired the work in early July 2014 and it is now on loan to Tate for 10 years. My Bed 1998 runs at Tate Britain until June 2016 and then will be shown at Turner Contemporary in Margate, Emin’s home town, followed by Tate Liverpool allowing audiences outside of London a glimpse of recent British art.

Until June 7th, the Tate Britain Gallery will be exhibiting some of the earliest and rarest photographs in the history of the medium. As a result of a collaboration with the Wilson Centre for Photography, the exhibition titled “Salt and Silver: Early Photography 1840 – 1860” will showcase a specifically British form of photography using salt prints.

You can roam from the Tate Britain in London, to the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, and end up in the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam in a span of 5 minutes. Normally the cost of criss-crossing the globe to view some of the world's priceless art would set you back a handsome sum, but that has all changed thanks to the Google Art Project.
