COLOUR CORRECTION

THURSDAY, APRIL 2, DURHAM

NASHER MUSEUM OF ART—The Nasher named its new exhibit of more than 100 screenprints by 40 artists Colour Correction (the British spelling is a nod to the many U.K. artists featured with the Americans), but you might just as well call it Warhol's Wake. It covers 1967 to 1975, a period when the pop-art icon, whose work is included, was slipping into a quieter phase after surviving his shooting by Valerie Solanas. But there's no quietude in these contemporaneous prints, which unite smooth volumes of flawless color, sometimes into purely optical configurations of sacred geometry (Richard Anuszkiewicz) or alien whimsy (Liliane Lijn, Nicholas Monro). Other artists print news of the turbulent times: Peter Phillips' postmodern wartime pinup, "Gravy for the Navy," includes a rainbow shower of happy pills. May Stevens' "Big Daddy Paper Doll" is a lineup of the usual imperial suspects: a cop, a priest and a soldier, bang bang bang. At this reception, curator Marshall N. Price discusses the exhibit; the show runs through August 30. 6 p.m., free, 2001 Campus Dr., Durham, 919-684-5135, www.nasher.duke.edu. —Brian Howe
