In 1958, when Gabrielle Selz was three months old, she, her parents, and her sister moved to New York where her father, Peter Selz, would begin his job as the chief curator at the Museum of Modern Art. What followed was a whirlwind childhood spent among art and artists. Gabrielle’s memoir, Unstill life: A Daughter’s Memoir of Art and Love in the Age of Abstraction, is a unique and fascinating window into the world of the Abstract Expressionist movement of the 1960s and 1970s. With smart, engaging prose and an unflinching willingness to examine the more complicated and dark sides of art, history, and family, Selz has created an unmatched look inside a world few of us know beyond what we see hanging in museums. This moving memoir and fascinating window into the art world will be a great read for anyone interested in family memoir or in the art and artists of the second half of the twentieth century. Unstill life is an invaluable resource, sure to be read and savored by art lovers and word lovers alike.
Gabrielle 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.
