About: Durham County Library will host Marshall Price, Nancy Hanks Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, and Jessica Kay Ruhle, Associate Curator of Education at the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University, for a discussion and slide lecture on Colour Correction at 7 p.m. on Monday, April 20, at the Southwest Regional Library, 3605 Shannon Rd.

Drawn primarily from the Nasher Museum’s vast collection of prints, Colour Correction examines 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, the exhibit illustrates what many art historians consider to be the “golden age” of screenprinting. Colour Correction includes more than 100 works by 40 artists, including Andy Warhol, Eduardo Paolozzi, May Stevens, Richard Anuszkiewicz, William T. Williams and Liliane Lijn. The exhibition is on display until August 30.

This program is sponsored by Durham Library Foundation. For more information call Joanne Abel at 919-560-0268 or visit durhamcountylibrary.org.
