11. Language of Objects Project

Scope and Contents note

The Language of Objects Project was an initiative of the Craft and Folk Art Museum undertaken over a three-year period (1991 – 1993) during the time the museum was re- envisioning itself after the start of the capital campaign for a new museum building. CAFAM had, since its inception, exhibited and collected materials representing cultures from every part of the globe. By the mid-seventies, its founders had become aware that Los Angeles was exceeding eastern metropolitan centers in demographic diversity. By the late eighties, well over 130 languages were spoken in L.A. schools. In large part because of the influence of movies and television, as well as the dawn of the Internet, the “globalization” of popular culture everywhere was beginning to reflect multiple cultural influences. This “multicultural movement” was affecting all cultural institutions. Los Angeles was a natural laboratory for this phenomenon and its documentation. In the early nineties, automation of most American library and museum collections was well underway, but the creation of the framework (the metadata) into which the cultural data was entered and decisions about contextual documentation was based almost exclusively on Western traditions. At CAFAM, it was decided it would be useful to build a database that could contain and reveal objects with complex cultural contexts, of which, at that time, there were many in the CAFAM permanent collection. Early in 1991, it was decided to develop a model for such a cultural database for local use. The database would “read art as cultural context,” and thus the project became known as “The Language of Objects.” Funding was obtained from the Getty Trust and the California Arts Council to hire a folklorist and a software developer as adjunct staff to work with the Director of Exhibition Development, Marcia Page, and other CAFAM staff on the database project. Page directed the project; Deirdre Evans-Pritchard was hired as guest folklorist and project curator; Emil Safier was hired as programmer; and Lydia Furata served as project assistant. It was thought that an exhibition might result, but the primary intention was to develop a sample cross-cultural object collection, contextual information (print and images) for the sample collection, and a model database framework to contain the collected documentation. Over the course of the three-year project, 195 objects were acquired, as well as multi-media documentation concerning their makers and their multiple cultural contexts. The project team developed the database framework, acquired the collection, and built a library of both original and published contextual material. The electronic database itself was not completed as funding for the necessary hardware did not materialize. Late in 1992, the Smithsonian Institution Experimental Gallery in Washington, D.C. expressed an interest in mounting an exhibition based on selections from the Language of Objects (L.O.O.) collection. The exhibition that resulted, “Dress Codes: Urban Folk Fashion” opened at the Experimental Gallery October 29, 1993 and was extended through March 26, 1994. (See Boxes 216 and 217 in this record group for documentation of the "Dress Codes" exhibition.) Because of their size, these files are not completely processed. Some folders marked “correspondence” include some other types of items; other folders may include some correspondence. They were “working research files” for the L.O.O. team. See also: Language of Objects Sample Object Collection Record Group.

11.02 Dress Codes Exhibition 1992 - 1994

Scope and Contents note

The files in this series concern the development, preparation, installation, and documentation of the exhibition, “Dress Codes: Urban Folk Fashion,” based on the Language of Objects (L.O.O.) Project, which was mounted at the Smithsonian Experimental Gallery in Washington, D.C., October 29, 1993 – March 26, 1994. They are arranged alphabetically by topic. Most of the objects in the L.O.O. Sample Objects Collection were included in the “Dress Codes” exhibition; however, the exhibition included many additional objects borrowed for the duration of the exhibition only. This series includes loan agreements, insurance documentation, facilities reports, and installation documentation. See also Record Group 12, Language of Objects Sample Object Collection Record Group for descriptions of the actual L.O.O. objects loaned out for the exhibition. See also Series 11.03, Object Research Files for research on Dress Codes Exhibition objects.

11.03 Object Research Files 1991 - 1994

Scope and Contents note

This series records the research conducted around the sample objects collected by the Language of Objects Project team and the role of those objects within the local culture. The files are arranged alphabetically by topic. Research varied from general cultural means of forming identity to more narrow research on specific objects. The files in this series include the “Dress Codes” exhibition research files on objects, but not exhibition planning or administrative files (e.g., grant proposal and administration—see Dress Codes Exhibition Series). Where they exist, releases for use of taped interviews and photographs are included here. 15 “theme” folders are included. These consist primarily of newspaper and magazine clippings and miscellaneous ephemeral materials related to such themes as connoisseurship/collecting, cultural representation, fashion, identity, multiculturalism, museums—changes in role, popular culture, and taste. These clippings and photocopies are from many different periods, but are primarily from the collecting period, i.e., the early nineties. The “type-of-object” files contain clippings and images of objects like those in the collection as well as some correspondence related to objects in the collection. The two female icons, Barbie and the Virgin of Guadalupe, were chosen for study as part of the Language of Objects (L.O.O.) database, but formed a minor part of the “Dress Codes” exhibition. Each was the subject of separate CAFAM evening programs presented by Deirdre Evans-Pritchard, L.O.O. Project Curator. Although most type-of-object files relate to types of objects in the L.O.O. Sample Objects Collection (see Record Group 12) preserved as part of the CAFAM archives, some files are included for objects that were, at the time, part of the CAFAM permanent collection (e.g., a rocking chair by Sam Maloof and a glass teapot by Richard Marquis). These were sold at auction at the time of CAFAM’s temporary closing in 1998. Some of these types of objects were the subject of taped interviews with notable dealers and transcripts of those tapes are included in the above materials. (See Box 195, folders 1 - 7 and 13 - Box 197, folder 7; Box 215, folders 24 - 31.)

12. Language of Objects Sample Object Collection

Scope and Contents note

The Language of Objects Sample Object Collection is a collection of 195 objects acquired in 1991-1993 for a special project, developed by CAFAM and funded by grants from the Getty Trust and the California Arts Council, called “The Language of Objects.” The objects were never accessioned as part of CAFAM’s permanent collection, but were treated as a special project collection intended to be used as samples in the development of a model art museum acquisitions database for material culture objects. (See description of the evolution of the project in the scope notes for Record Group 11, The Language of Objects Project.) It was decided to focus on contemporary cross-cultural materials found primarily in the Los Angeles area. Seven thematic threads were chosen. Two female icons were identified as having both absorbed and reflected a variety of contemporary cultural influences: Mattel’s Barbie doll and the Virgin of Guadalupe. Four textile traditions (Pendleton blanket cloth, the bandanna, the kimono, and kente cloth) were chosen and the cult of the teapot was also included. All of these items had long cultural histories within the originating cultures and had been used metaphorically as well as functionally both inside and outside the originating cultures. In addition, they were objects of connoisseurship as well as being prevalent in the popular culture. Late in 1992, the Smithsonian Institution Experimental Gallery in Washington, DC expressed an interest in mounting an exhibition based on selections from the The Language of Objects (L.O.O.) collection. Marcia Page was Project Director; Deidre Evans-Pritchard was Project Curator. The exhibition that resulted, “Dress Codes: Urban Folk Fashion,” developed by the L.O.O. project team in collaboration with the Experimental Gallery, opened at the Gallery in October 1993 and was extended through March 1994. (See Series 11.02, "Dress Codes Exhibition Series," Boxes 216 - 217, for documentation of the "Dress Codes" exhibition.) Most of the objects in the sample object collection were included in the “Dress Codes” exhibition, though it is not a complete exhibition checklist as additional objects from private and public collections were borrowed for the exhibition. A few of the "objects" included in the collection are actually exhibition signage and interpretive materials used in the “Dress Codes” installation. Though a few notable pieces in the Language of Objects collection could be described as “fine craft” or “folk art,” the collection as a whole is predominantly manufactured popular culture items. Some are the products of giant corporations like Mattel; many more are the efforts of individual entrepreneurs at small community-based companies in L.A. and throughout the U.S. Not surprisingly, many, though designed, marketed, and distributed for sale in the U.S., were manufactured “offshore” in China, Japan, and Malaysia. They were acquired by the Language of Objects research team at flea markets, grocery stores, and places like Target and Toys R Us, located in neighborhoods all over L.A., including Little Tokyo, East L.A., South L.A., Venice, and Pasadena. A notable exception to the “found in L.A.” premise is a group of items designed for the McDonald’s Harlem restaurant in New York City. With a few exceptions, the L.O.O. objects have little intrinsic value. But the collection represents a snapshot of the developing cross-cultural milieu that was Los Angeles at the start of the last decade of the 20th century. The objects are divided into seven type-of-object groups: Bandannas, Barbie and Other Fashion Dolls, Kente Cloth, Kimono, Pendleton Blankets, Teapots, and the Virgin of Guadalupe.
