Drawn primarily from the Nasher Museum’s vast collection of prints, Colour Correction examined a moment when artists adopted, and adapted, the screenprint technique during an extremely fertile period of experimentation and productivity in the United States and Great Britain. Coinciding with a confluence of social upheaval, political turmoil and artistic change and exchange, Colour Correction illustrated what many art historians consider to be the “golden age” of screenprinting. The exhibition included more than 100 works by 40 artists─from the playful Pop art of Andy Warhol and Eduardo Paolozzi to the scathing political critiques of May Stevens to the minimalist abstractions and optical exercises in visual perception by artists such as Richard Anuszkiewicz, William T. Williams and Liliane Lijn.
