A new exhibition is opening at the Tate Liverpool featuring the work of controversial artist Tracey Emin. It will include her iconic work My Bed, which caused outrage when it was unveiled in 1990. The display also features the work of the 18th Century artist William Blake.

The new exhibition highlights links between the two artists - Blake too courted controversy with his support of liberalism and sexual freedoms and advocating unrestrained imaginative freedom of expression.
