Executed in 1999, Every Part of Me’s Bleeding lent its name to Emin’s first solo show in the United States at Lehmann Maupin gallery in New York. Later that year, the work featured prominently in Emin’s Turner Prize exhibition at Tate Britain, London, where it was exhibited alongside her provocative installation, My Bed, aligning its confessional missive with the impassioned heartbreak embodied by her most celebrated work. More recently, the work was included in Emin’s 2013 exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Miami, Angel Without You, the artist’s first solo museum show in America, dedicated exclusively to her works in neon. She later enthused, ‘It was such a great feeling to have so much neon in one place. The neon and argon gases make us feel positive, that’s why you have neon at funfairs, casinos, red-light districts and bars. It’s also to do with the way it electronically pulsates around the glass, it’s a feelgood factor’ (T. Emin, quoted in S. Hastings, ‘Tracey Emin and Gavin Turk on the power of neon’, in The Spectator, 29 November 2014).
