MONICA CASANOVA EXHIBIT
Monica Casanova is an underground visual artist and fashion designer living and working in Mexico City and New York. For more than twenty years,she has been a leading figure in the various underground movements in Mexico City. She has worked with rock bands, alternative theater with figures such as Juan Jose Gurrola. She has also performed with Katia Tirado for Ex Teresa Arte Actual (Mexico City). Monica has done several performances as a lady wrestler, transforming it in a new form of art in Arena Mexico. Monice has helped it gain recognition in the multimedia art events, which has led to inspiration for Mexican artists like Laureana Toledo, Francis Alys and Dj Chrysler, who shot Monica as a icon figure.
In New York she has collaborated with Patricia Field making the installations of her famous window displays. The art in Bergdorf Goodman's window displays were Monica's space of creativity for a year, as well. She was part of a show in Deitch Project with Kembra Phaler doing limited edition pieces of 'hoodies' and 't-shirts' that were sold to several art collectors from New York.
Monica has done performances in Susan Bartsch's events with multiple fashion looks that she used to reinvent herself over and over. She has been photographed as part of the fashion icons gang of New York for Paper Magazine.
She has been featured as an iconoclast figure in publications such as V Magazine, Paper Magazine, Celeste, Rude Magazine, Black Book, Nylon Japan and Nylon Mexico for which she just received a full interview for their first issue. She also has published her photos in numerous publications.
Her last exhibition was held in the Museum of Estonia showcasing Mexican wrestlers.
THE VOLUPTUOUS HORROR OF KAREN BLACK--THE BEST LOOK ON EARTH!
Monica considers her daughter, Amanita, her best piece of art. Amanita is part of the theatrical death rock band The Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black.
BUNNY NOTE: Amanita is also a Wigstock fan who joined me onstage in 2004 (?) for a hilarious moment which can only be found on my dvd, RATED X FOR XTRA-RETARDED.

Stop Being a Doormat! Lessons From An Expert (Podcast)
Do you want to switch careers but just don’t know how? Do you wish for a better life, but are too scared to take a risk? Are you stuck, and do you procrastinate?
If any of these sentiments ring true for you, then listen to today’s podcast. I interview one of the most impressive women I have met in some time: Daylle Deanna Schwartz.
Once a typical school teacher, Daylle accepted a challenge from her students to create a rap record. She hates stereotypes, and it bothered her when the kids told her that a white woman could never be a successful rapper.
So she set out to prove them wrong, and taught herself the skill. In no time she became known as the “rappin teach”, and her life would be changed forever:
Daylle Deanna Schwartz Interview: Daylle’s story is one of true inspiration, and she is an excellent example of how anything is possible once you have belief and passion.
The interview takes you through her incredible ride starting a record label, becoming a best selling author, appearing on Oprah and Howard Stern, and eventual her journey into the world of self-empowerment. And yes, you will also hear her rap a bit!
In all, I found Daylle’s stories highly motivational for my own life. I know I can make this blog as big and meaningful as I dream, for example, and can attract anyone I want to interview on my podcast “Conversations to Change the World”.
Creating the ideal life for yourself is worth the risk! I hope you find Daylle’s experiences as meaningful as I do.
I also highly recommend you check out Daylle’s blog Lessons From a Recovering Doormat where she talks about her experiences and gives advice.
