This item is incredibly rare - It is the Catalogue for the Turner Prize, 1999.

It features a write up on each of the four finalists - Tracey Emin, Steve McQueen, Steven Pippin & Jane and Louise Wilson.

It also lists the works exhibited for each Artist, and in Tracey Emins case obviously covers amongst her listings the very famous My Bed as well as other work such as Every Part of Me's Bleeding.

Tracey caused great controversy in 1997 when she took part in a Channel 4 television debate programme stimulated by the Turner Prize. She was well known in the art world but largely unknown to the wider public at that time. During the debate she appeared drunk, swearing and insulting the other panel members and saying she wanted to go home to her mum - Tracey then left the debate. Although later she said this peculiar behavior was caused by painkillers she was taking for a broken finger, it did cause considerable media attention and brought her national fame

However in 1999 she became a nominee herself for the Turner Prize.

Greatest attention was given to her exhibit My Bed which was a double bed in a dishevelled state with stained sheets, surrounded by detritus such as soiled underwear, condoms, slippers, and empty drink bottles. She also displayed two-dimensional artwork and videos.

She was commonly thought to have been the winner - and is still sometimes referred to as such - although in fact the Prize was awarded to Steve McQueen for his video based on a Buster Keaton film.

A very rare collectors item indeed and in excellent condition.
