Drawn mostly from the collection, Colour Correction presented screenprints from the era of war protests, the hippy movement and psychedelic culture. The exhibition focused on a period of experimentation and productivity that many art historians call 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, and the minimalist abstractions and optical exercises by Richard Anuszkiewicz, William T. Williams and Liliane Lijn. These artists, among the first to use screenprinting outside the commercial art world, helped redefine screenprinting as a fine art form.The exhibition was organized by Marshall Price, Nancy Hanks Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art. After opening at Duke, the exhibition traveled to Kalamazoo Institute of Arts in Michigan.
