Tim Youd’s Exhibition Opening

Jump to Comments

On Thursday, September 13th, Tim Youd’s exhibition, Tim Youd: The Hudson Valley Retyped, will open at the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center. To mark the opening, there will be a reception from 5:30-9:00 pm. During the reception Youd will be in the gallery retyping of Elizabeth Bishop’s The Complete Poems: 1927 – 1979. He will continue this performance on Vassar’s campus through September 18th. As always, he will be happy to answer any questions about his project.

The Art Center’s exhibition marks the culmination of Youd’s retyping of novels set in the Hudson Valley. Beginning this past spring and continuing through the summer, Youd traveled to eight different locations–Poughkeepsie, Ossining, Nyack, Yonkers, Catskill, Albany, Ghent, and Hudson–each corresponding to a novel’s setting or the author’s biography. Using site-specific performances, Youd became closer to the authors and the stories which he retyped. The finished products on view are beautiful ink soaked pages, markers of both the duration Youd spent typing and the time of the novels’ narratives.

Tim Youd: The Hudson Valley Retyped continues through October 14th, 2018.
