Monica Canilao at the Luggage Store

Monica Canilao met me yesterday for an interview for Swee(t)art. I wanted to interview her for a while and we couldn’t figure out where to meet, at her west oakland studio or somewhere else. It turns out that there is not much work left in her studio right now anyway, it is all crammed into the Luggage store gallery. Not to say the show is in anyway confused, infact, it is one of the best shows I have seen in a long time! Experiencing the show inspired me: A complete experience and shook some dust off what I think Oakland art can be. Not just objects but a whole dream-like environment. I will print the whole interview in Sweetart10, coming out in june. Monica is a good interview and a real sweetheart (sweetart.)
