Fresh from his critically acclaimed typing performance of Henry Miller’s Tropic of Capricorn on the Brooklyn sidewalk outside of Miller’s boyhood home, Tim Youd is continuing his page turning performances here at MOAH. Dubbed “regional conceptualism”, Youd performs the works in locales geographically related to either the author’s life or the plot of the novel. Youd will be performing Tom Wolfe’s The Right Stuff as it relates to the Antelope Valley region. He also utilizes the same make and model typewriter used by the author in its original creation, typing the novel on a single page run through the machine over and over.
You can see Tim Youd perform at MOAH at the opening reception Saturday, August 3rd from 4 to 6 p.m. and then on August 4th through August 11th from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The artist can be viewed performing additional Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on the following dates:
August 15, 22, 29
Oct 3, 10
