Gabrielle Selz and Frederic Tuten

In 1958, Gabrielle Selz moved to New York, where her father, Peter Selz, would begin work as the chief curator of painting and sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art, and carry on to champion a generation of modern artists, some the most celebrated of the day: Rothko, de Kooning, and Tinguely.  A memoir about the glamour and chaos of growing up in the art world, The Unstill Life serves both as a chronicle of American culture and a window into the real lives behind it. Join Selz for a reading and discussion with the great Frederic Tuten, author, most recently, of Self-Portraits: Fictions.“A beautiful, compelling memoir, a testament to art, to love, to life and all its losses and joys.”—Frederic TutenGabrielle Selz has published in magazines and newspapers including More magazine, the New York Times, Newsday, and Fiction. She writes regularly on art for the Huffington Post. She lives in Southampton, New York.
