Colour Correction: British and American Screenprints, 1967-75
November 27, 2015 - March 27, 2016
In the 1960s, artists in England and the U.S. rediscovered the screenprint at a time of social, political, and artistic upheaval. Invented in the early 20th century as a quick, low-cost way to create colorful, graphic prints, silkscreening was seemingly the perfect medium to illustrate this time of sweeping change by artists from Albers to Warhol, Caulfield to Motherwell. More than 80 innovative, dramatic, and vibrant works by 32 artists will fill our two largest galleries with color, shape, and ideas.
