Eric Fischl hosts a series of conversations at Guild Hall this summer featuring dialogues with art insiders who are making an impact in the creative fields.
Starting on Sunday, June 23, 2019, at 7 p.m., Eric Fischl takes the stage and launches "Eric Fischl; Art, Love, Life: A Conversation with Eric Fischl and Frederic Tuten" focusing on Tuten's new memoir My Young Life. Acclaimed artist Eric Fischl will be in a lively discussion with celebrated novelist, short story writer and essayist Frederic Tuten, who Jon Robin Baitz calls “a national treasure and a writer’s-writer of the first order.”
My Young Life by Tuten was published in March 2019 and recalls his personal and artistic coming of age in New York in the fifties, a defining period for Tuten that set him on a course to become a writer. Spanning two decades and bringing us from his family’s kitchen table in the Bronx and the cafes of Greenwich Village and back again, My Young Life is an intimate portrait of an artist’s coming-of-age, set against one of the most exciting creative periods of our time.
Fischl's own memoir "Bad Boy: My Life On and Off the Canvas" was published in 2013 in hardcover and in 2016 in paperback.
