Studio Visit with Monica Canilao

by Ken HarmanPosted on

Last weekend we stopped by the Oakland, CA studio of Monica Canilao, who we hadn’t seen since last year’s studio visit. Since then, the artist has relocated to the Yard Dogs complex, a hub of creative types ranging from musicians to sword swallowers to artists, tucked away in a West Oakland compound.

Never one to stay too sedentary, Canilao was putting the finishing touches on new work headed for Rome’s Wunderkammern and just as we arrived she was getting ready to depart on a cross-country performance art tour aptly titled the Dawn of the Universe Tour. With stops planned in Washington DC and Detroit, the artist’s latest adventure has just begun and we’re curious to hear her stories when she (eventually) returns.
