The corporate body is the creator of the work.  The relationship designator would either be 
"author" or if you preferred to use the element name (see the PCC guidelines on 
relationship designators), "creator".

Subject: [RDA-L] Relationship designator for corporate creator

Here's what I hope is a quick question.  Say you're cataloging an exhibition catalog that 
is legitimately entered under corporate body--e.g., a museum.  The museum put on the 
exhibit, published the catalog and owns all the art involved.  What is the appropriate 
relationship designator for the 100 for the museum?  Is it just "author?"
