Ilse Bing: Queen of the Leica celebrates the great woman photographer Ilse Bing (1899 - 1998) in an exhibition composed entirely of her sumptuous and rare vintage prints. Born in Frankfurt, Germany, Bing studied math and art history before picking up a camera, decamping to Paris, and launching a photographic career that would last three decades.

In 2011, the Occupy movement filled town squares across the country in protest of economic inequality. Artists and graphic designers created vivid posters to spread the word. This exhibition looks at the resurgence of protest posters today, whether advocating for climate change issues, reproductive rights, gender rights, or treatment for war veterans. Included are works by more than fifty artists from around the United States and beyond. The exhibition includes the collaborative print portfolio “This Is an Emergency! A Reproductive Rights and Gender Justice Portfolio” (2012), as well as “Occuprint” (2012), a portfolio of Occupy posters from around the world. The show also features two print portfolios organized by the Justseeds Artists' Cooperative. “War Is Trauma” (2012) was produced by Justseeds in collaboration with the Iraq Veterans Against the War. Justseeds also organized the portfolio “Resourced” (2010), which addresses issues of climate change and environmental inequality. The exhibition is organized by the Davison Art Center in collaboration with Special Collections & Archives, Olin Library.
