"Even if artists collectives are not actually proliferating more than before, they are certainly gaining in traction."—Nicholas Cullinan, Artforum

"Collaboration isn’t, for most artists, a recipe for making masterpieces but rather a way of breaking habits –and new ground."—Griselda Murray Brown, Financial Times
