Phoenix Art Museum's PhotoBid Surveys Contemporary Photography

For six years running, Phoenix Art Museum has performed an artistic service with its annual PhotoBid photography auction and fundraiser. Curated by Rebecca Senf, the Norton Family Curator of Photography at PAM and the Center for Creative Photography, the annual survey exhibition returns online and in-person featuring an array of the top local and national photographers donating works for the benefit of InFocus, the museum's photography support organization.

Though simply a fundraiser at heart, PhotoBid is truly the closest exhibition Phoenix has to an annual overview of contemporary photography. Featuring the work of such artists as Luis Gonzalez Palma, Bruce Myrin, Mark Klett, Eadweard J. Muybridge, Binh Danh, Sean Deckert, Bill Timmerman, and dozens of others, the exhibition transcends styles to present a thorough look at what photography offers to the general artistic landscape, locally and nationally.
