Cady Noland (born 1956 in Washington, DC.) is a postmodern conceptual sculptor and an internationally exhibited installation artist, whose work deals with the failed promise of the American Dream and the divide between fame and anonymity, among other themes.[1][2] Her work has been exhibited in museums and expositions including the Whitney Biennial in 1991 and Documenta 9 in Kassel, Germany.[3] She attended Sarah Lawrence College and is the daughter of the Color Field painter Kenneth Noland (1924-2010).

Exhibition history[edit]

Her work has been exhibited in museums and expositions including the Whitney Biennial in 1991 and Documenta 9 in Kassel, Germany.[4]

Solo exhibitions of Noland’s work have been organized by the Paula Cooper Gallery in New York (1994), Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam (1995), and Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford, Connecticut (1996).

Market history[edit]

Noland holds the record for the highest price ever paid for an artwork by a living woman ($6.6m), for her 1989 work Oozewald sold at Sothebys.[5] In the fall of 2012 the same auction house, Sothebys removed her piece "Cowboys Milking"(1990) from a contemporary sale after the artist "disavowed" the work. Both Noland the auction house were later sued by the piece's owner, gallerist Marc Jancou for twenty six million dollars (with twenty million having been sought from Noland and six from Sotheby's).[6] In November 2012 a judge dismissed Jancou's lawsuit.[7]
