    The managerial role of the curator was played in the show from what I’ve seen (artists were included or excluded and treated as a means to an end).

    Just not by curators.

    What *is* a problem in the format isn’t its optimizing out of the transaction cost of curatorial ego. It’s the extension of Cowellization of cultural production and ambition to art. This will only feed careerist hipsterism and further evacuate the content of art.
