In her sculpture and installation works, New York-based artist Nancy Davidson (born 1943), recipient of a 2014 Guggenheim Fellowship, celebrates and satirizes popular culture. A central example is the American cowgirl. This publication combines archival cowgirl photographs with images of Davidsons sculptures, photographs of photographs and installations.

Nancy Davidson is an interdisciplinary artist, working primarily in sculpture and installation. Davidson grew up in Chicago and received a B.F.A. from the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Davidsons honors include the Guggenheim Fellowship (2014): Creative Capital (2005): Pollock-Krasner Foundation (2001): Anonymous Was a Woman Award (1997): Yaddo Residency (1980, 2003): Massachusetts Council of Arts, Individual Artists Fellowship (1981), NEA (1979).
