- Most of a Mexican Museum collection fails authentication
By Sam Whiting - Thursday Jul 6, 2017
Most of a Mexican Museum collection fails authenticationAlmost all of the artifacts described as the oldest in the permanent collection of the Mexican Museum are either forgeries or cannot be authenticated to display in a national museum.According to the report, only 83 of 2,000 artifacts from the pre-Hispanic, or pre-Columbian, era could be certified as museum-quality by an independent team of museum curators who came from Mexico City to conduct the test.The other 1,917 are considered “decorative,” and will probably be given to schools or smaller museums before the Mexican moves from its temporary Fort Mason site to a permanent home in a luxury condo tower being constructed near SFMOMA.The $80,000 report was undertaken as a requirement of the Smithsonian Institution, which accepted the Mexican Museum as an affiliate in 2012.The recognition by the Smithsonian took the Mexican out of the realm of small community museums, where it has operated since its founding in 1975.All of the items studied, both fake and real, were donated to the museums, and no tax deductions were given to donors without independent authentication, Kluger said.[...] hand-me-downs cannot be part of any museum that offers parts of its collection on loan and accepts artifact loans from the Smithsonian.According to the museum’s website, the pre-Hispanic Collection goes back 2,500 years and represents 2,000 pieces encompassing Mesoamerican, Central American and Peruvian cultures.The items include vessels, tools, ceremonial objects and body ornaments from Teotihuacan, Mayan, Zapotec, Nayarit, Colima and Peruvian Incan civilizations.The 83 items that were authenticated include male and female figurines, jars, bowls, vases and necklace ornaments.According to Chávez, who has taught a course in art and culture in Latin America at the Berkeley journalism school, the report and the board’s response to it are positive signals.
