Imagine, then, each of CADY NOLAND ’s installations as an entry into an ever-collecting, mortally transient, tactile encyclopedia of visceral Americana, where each entry is constructed of principled materials (for instance, aluminum), storied objects (handcuffs, rubber tires, Budweiser beer cans, bug sprayers, American flags, wire mesh baskets and fences), and embodied ephemera (Patty Hearst, Charles Manson, Wilbur Mills, Vince Foster): Art as encyclopedia, history as vaudeville.–  THYRZA NICHOLS GOODEVE,  Parkett No. 46, 1996

Please note that CADY NOLAND’s work is currently part of a presentation at Mamco in Geneva along with sculptures and installations by LAURIE PARSONS and FELIX-GONZALEZ-TORRES. Their works are on view until September 10, 2017.
