Engaging Encounters- readings from Ernst Eisenmayer’s unpublished writings
TONIGHT – Thursday 23 February 2012, 7pm.
Ernst Eisenmayer’s vivid writings offer a fascinating insight into the chance meetings and friendships forged during internment on the Isle of Man and his early years in London as an artist. The series of short narratives recall his involvement with the Austrian Centre, conversations with Oskar Kokoschka in his Park Lane studio and Eisenmayer’s passion for the metropolis and its inhabitants.
The reading accompanies the retrospective exhibition of Austrian painter and sculptor Ernst Eisenmayer whose works explore issues of place, encounters and memory, and offer a powerful insight into the complex and multi-sited trajectories of an émigré artist in the twentieth and early twenty-first century.
