Booklet produced on the occasion of Cady Noland at the Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt, 27 October 2018 – 31 March 2019

“During the 1990s, Cady Noland earned a reputation for making sculptural assemblages that toy with iconic symbols of Americana. Her CV lists numerous prestigious exhibitions – the 1991 Whitney Biennial and documenta IX among them – but in 2001, Noland withdrew from public life. Although she rarely shows new work, her name often appears in the context of auction houses. She has made headlines for her work’s record-setting prices, but more often, she has hit the news owing to litigation. Indeed, Noland’s numerous attempts to prevent the sale of her works, arguing they are too damaged, has been interpreted by some as an attempt to destroy her own market. The fact that the artist’s first exhibition in nearly a decade is appearing outside America at the Museum für Moderne Kunst (MMK) in Frankfurt is the latest chapter in a career that seems to rebuke the art world’s conventions at every step.” White Review, 2019
