So can a true collaboration exist within the institutional framework? Is it possible for curators and artists to collaborate on a gallery-based project without collaboration becoming a smokescreen for homogeneity? Can curators be collaborauteurs rather than curator-auteurs? If collaboration allows galleries to do things that 'would not otherwise be possible to do individually'[6] it is clear that collaboration will open up the possibility for innovation and experimentation. It is necessary that collaboration is marked by and opens up a space for genuine exchange of ideas in order that differing view points may co-exist, in contrast to the singular view points perpetuated by the curator-auteur.
