ARNOLD GARY RUBIN (1937-1988)

With great regret we report
the death of Arnold Rubin on
April 9 from stomach cancer.
Arnold received his Ph.D. from
Roy Sieber at Indiana
University based on fieldwork
in northern Nigeria from 1964-
66. In 1967 he began teaching
in the Department of Design,
Art, and Art History at UCLA,
a position he held until his
death. He returned to Nigeria
in 1969-71 and for brief
periods in 1982 and 1987. He
published extensively and was
widely respected for his
critical analysis of the
methodologies and objectives
of his chosen discipline.

Although the focus of his
African research was the Benue
River Valley, Arnold also did
pioneering work on the popular
and unconventional arts of
contemporary southern
California. Studies of the
Pasedena Tournament of Roses,
Forest Lawn Cemetery, and
contemporary tattoo have been
groundbreaking, inspiring, and
relevant for many, both inside
and outside of African area
studies.

Arnold was the primary force
behind the establishment of
ACASA and passionately
believed in an organization
dedicated to furthering
discourse among African art
scholars. To this end he
organized the initial planning
meetings for ACASA, drafted
its bylaws and served as its
second president. We can all
thank Arnold for laying the
foundation of this
increasingly important voice
in African Studies.


It is tragic that Arnold's own
loud, clear and singular voice
has been so prematurely
silenced.
Doran Ross
ACASA President

ACASA BUSINESS MEETING AT THE
ASA MEETINGS.

The ACASA Business Meeting
will be held immediately
following the afternoon panels
on Saturday, October ?9th.

One important Agenda item is
the panel for the ACASA slot
at the San Francisco CAA in
1989.

Barbara Frank has proposed a
panel entitled: Integrating
African Art into the
Curriculum: Studio Art and Art
History. Conceived as a
roundtable, it would address a
number of issues such as the
problems with the availability
of written and visual re-


b

sources that both Africanists
and nrn-Africanists face when
offering courses in African
arts in their Departments.
Barbara will present her panel
idea during the Business
Meeting for consideration.
Anyone else wishing to propose
a panel idea for this CAA slot
should also be present and
should be prepared to do so at
the Business meeting.

Gettv Project MIT's Center
for Materials Research in
Archaeology and Ethnology
(CMRAE) The Getty Foundation
has funded an implementation
grant for the project entitled
"Style in Art and Technology:
Pre Columbian America and Pre
Colonial Africa. The Project
Director is Heather Lechtman.
The overall design of the pro-
ject includes two teams each
composed of an archeologist
and an art historian. One team
will address the manufacture
and use of pre Columbian and
contemporary ceramic art and
artifacts in Ecuador and Peru;
the other team will examine
the pre Colonial and current
production of comparable items
made of metal in Zaire and
Zimbabwe. Both teams will
focus on the concept of
technological style and its
bearing on art and other forms
of material culture. The
America team includes Dorothy
Hosler (archaeologist) and
Thomans Cummins (art
historian). The Africa team
includes Susan Terry Childs
(archaeologist) and William
Dewey (art historian).


Corridors Project

Patrick McNaughton and Diane
Pelrine are working on a
longterm project called
Corridors. Its goal is to
provide a rationale for a
series of striking formal and
conceptual similarities that
occur in the artworks of many
ethnic groups spanning an
approximately 3000 mile long
region from Nigeria west to
the Atlantic Ocean.
Traditions of shared image


making include bird
headdresses, equestrian
figures, elaborately carved
wooden doors, elegantly
designed forged iron lamps,
narrow loom strip woven cloth
composed of complex polychrome
patterns, sharply abstracted
antelope sculptures, minimally
articulated wooden figures,
and very imaginative helmet
masks that bear dramatic
horrific imagery. Shared
conceptualizations include a
pronounced orientation toward
abstract forms, often with
emphases on monumetality and
geometry, a tremendous
predisposition to reduce
depictions to symbolic
essences and the studied
ability to develop composite
images that generate
complicated bodies of
symbolism and exert tremendous
influence on the behavior of
clients and audiences.
Specifically we plan to
assemble archaeological,
linguistic, historical,
anthropological, folkloristic,
and art historical materials
on several "Corridors"of human
activity that our work to date
suggest may be critical. They
include such commercial
activities as developing trade
networks, opening up new trade
areas and establishing new
trade goods. They also include
traditions of strip weaving
and metal sculpting,
especially ancient iron
smelting and forging. In
addition, religious and
political institutions such as
cults associated with
particular dieties or
particular types of
sculptures will be examined.
We would very much appreciate
any suggestions from our
colleagues or references to
little known objects from the







categories mentioned above.
