"I've come to regard the production of aesthetic meaning and value as a collective enterprise ... as the product of a group of ... curators, art  historians, caption writers, preparators, docents, lecturers and even dealers and collectors ... acting together (and not necessarily consciously in concert) to produce what we think of as being the meaning of the work of art, and the value of the work of art" [1] - Craig Owens
