With so many photographers vying for the chance to blow you away, this is a noisy show – a little too exciting for its own good.  Although its eye is on the future, it captures the anything-goes mood of the moment and finds the medium in flux, if not confusion.  Straight photographs, most of them seriously bend, are outnumbered by manipulated, collaged, over-painted, appropriated, and digitzed imaged that have little in common except a disregard for traditional picture-making.  Rounding up rising stars (Eileen Quinlan, Mariah Robertson, Paul Sepuya) and promising new faces (Lucas Blalock, Daphne Fitzpatrick, K8 Hardy), the curator Dean Daderko puts on the first important photography group show of the season.   Through July 3.
