Cady Noland was born in 1956 in Washington, D.C., and earned a BA from Sarah Lawrence College, Bronxville, New York. She lives and works in New York City. Noland emerged in the late 1980s and early 1990s as a force in contemporary art with her gritty critiques of America’s material and ideological culture. Before showing with Paula Cooper Gallery, New York, her work was part of Colin De Land’s legendary American Fine Arts Gallery. Noland’s work has been exhibited in the Whitney Biennial and Documenta 9. Solo exhibitions have been organized by Paula Cooper Gallery; Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam; and the Wadsworth Atheneum, Hartford. There are five Noland works in the Broad collections. Noland works have been loaned to five venues, including the Fogg Museum, Harvard University, Cambridge, and the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York.
