Last Chance Art Exhibitions 

When: Sat., Jan. 5 2013

AREA GALLERIES & MUSEUMS—Since the busy holiday season tends to preempt visits to area museums, several exhibitions have lingered into this weekend to give you one last chance before they close on Sunday. The Nasher Museum of Art at Duke features Time Capsule, Age 13 to 21: The Contemporary Art Collection of Jason Rubell, originally shown at the old Duke Museum of Art in 1991 when Rubell was still a student. The collection—which includes early works by contemporary stars Cindy Sherman, Andreas Gursky, Keith Haring, Jenny Holzer, Jeff Koons, Sol Lewitt, Bruce Nauman, Richard Prince, Gerhard Richter and many others—was Rubell's senior project. See nasher.duke.edu.

The Durham Arts Council offers a last look at three shows: Nuno Gomes' Long Play—in which the artist has collaged album covers to achieve a hip nostalgia—is the best of the exhibitions. In the other galleries, David Baker's photography establishes a crisp post-industrial aesthetic, while Matthew Litteken's lyrical paintings, drawings and collages critique money as both material and concept. Visit durhamarts.org.

Meanwhile, at UNC-Chapel Hill, Ackland Art Museum closes its Season of Japan shows this weekend. A cluster of five small exhibits features a spectacular assortment of Japanese posters from the mid-1950s to the 1990s, kinetic and clever short films from Tadanori Yokoo and Keiichi Tanaami, recently restored scroll paintings and stunning modern ceramics. See www.ackland.org.

Admission to the Nasher is $5; the Ackland and the Durham Arts Council are free. Visit museum websites for exhibition hours. —Chris Vitiello
