Private Performance: March 24 – March 29, 2014
Reception: Thursday, April 3, 6-9 pm
Coagula Curatorial and Teale Hatheway are pleased to present Tim Youd’s critically acclaimed undertaking to retype 100 classic novels including Raymond Chandler’s “The Lady in the Lake” at The Los Angeles Athletic Club.
Youd retypes each of his chosen novels on a single sheet of paper, on the same model typewriter used by the author and in a location germane to the novel itself. Youd will be retyping “The Lady in the Lake” in a private performance at the historic Athletic Club where Raymond Chandler met James Oviatt who served as the model for Chandler’s unsavory character of Derace Kingsley.
Please join us on April 3, from 6-9 pm, on the third floor of the Los Angeles Athletic Club for an exclusive one-night-only exhibition of selected works by the artist and to witness Youd’s performance finale as he completes “Lady in the Lake.”
Youd’s Chandler Cycle will culminate in a solo show at the Museum of Contemporary Arts San Diego in La Jolla May 16 through August 31, 2014.

Living the Dream
For me, being an artist is more than painting alone in my studio. I am inspired by other artists, off-beat adventures and spectacle. I curate exhibitions, collaborate on large public art installations, am an occasional color consultant and interior designer and sometimes I sculpt. I seem to do a lot of writing, but that's just business. I live an art-filled life. Thanks for coming along for the ride.
