A Space to talk: Curator, Artist, Collaborauteur.
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' 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.
