Catalogue Note

"Cady Noland exposes the myth behind the promise of the American Dream. Her work addresses what she sees as America’s anxiety over the country’s failed pledge of freedom, security, and success for all. Combining iconic objects and images (flags, beer cans, celebrity photos, and the contents of tabloid newspapers) with base elements (grocery baskets, handcuffs, walkers, and portable metal barricades), Noland’s output tends toward haphazard arrangements that signify impaired social and physical mobility."
Excerpt from Joan Young's Cady Noland, SLA #4, Solomon R. Guggenheim Collection
