He has been in residence at various historic writer’s homes, including William Faulkner’s Rowan Oak in Oxford, MS, Flannery O’Connor’s Andalusia in Milledgeville, GA, and Virginia Woolf’s Monk’s House in Rodmell, Sussex. Most recently, in the Spring of 2018, the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis exhibited his work and hosted a multi-novel performance cycle. Youd's work has been the subject of numerous other museum exhibitions, including the New Orleans Museum of Art, Monterey Museum of Art, Hemingway-Pfeffer Museum, Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, Hanes Gallery at Wake Forest, and the Lancaster Museum of Art and History. He has presented and performed his 100 Novels project at Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE) and LAXART, the Museo dell’Ara Pacis in Rome, and has retyped Joe Orton’s Collected Plays at The Queen’s Theatre with MOCA London. Diptychs from the Hudson Valley retyping cycle will be exhibited at the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center’s Focus Gallery in fall 2018. He lives and works in Los Angeles.
