PERFORMANCE ART: Tim Youd’s 100 Novels Project @ the Albany Institute of History & Art, Albany. The 100 Novels Project is an ongoing performance art piece in which Tim Youd retypes novels from beginning to end in locations that play a central role in the novels. Employing the same make and model typewriter used by the author, he types each novel on a single sheet of paper, which is backed by an additional support sheet. The artist loads the two-ply paper through the typewriter repeatedly, until the entire novel has been retyped. Upon completion, the two pages are separated and mounted side by side as a framed diptych, recalling two pages of an open book with the words obscured. Youd will be re-typing “Ironweed” by Albany author William Kennedy. 10:30am-4:45pm. Through Saturday.
