Tracey Emin - Venice Biennale
Artist Tracey Emin is to represent Britain at the world's longest-running international art exhibition.
The British Council has chosen the controversial artist to produce a show of new work for the British Pavilion at next year's 52nd Venice Biennale.
She will be the second woman to produce a solo show for the UK at the Venice Biennale, following Rachel Whiteread in 1997.
