Photography: Holding Its Own

Mid-exhibition run, checked in with TAM's Max Presneill for an assessment of the artists' chain-curated show, Telephone. (Closing June 25.)

The director said he's pleased with how the show turned out. Said, too, that "photography is holding its place," and "being used in a '70s conceptual way."

And said he sees in the show "a re-engagement with craft and technological prowess," noting that the videos, for instance, display high production value.

Also, the show has more drawings than he would have guessed, the artists display a greater ambition, and it would appear that "slacking is gone."

If so, what will become of Bob Dobbs?
