Wynne Palmer is a Vancouver-based interdisciplinary artist, an independent curator, producer and mentor.
Often working in the areas of community and public art, Wynne's research and personal art practice focuses on the threshold, where the natural and technological worlds converge, bringing into question issues of identity, concepts of location and the philosophy of language within the collective consciousness.
Wynne is a serial collaborator, interested in the dynamics of improvisation and participatory art practices. She draws inspiration from occupying intersections of seemingly contradictory ideas. She likes to challenge herself and others by mentoring emerging artists and supporting innovative ways of thinking and creating, including: social engagement through non-traditional educational models, art practices and exhibition spaces.
Currently, Wynne is the curator and co-producer of Digital Carnival for Cinevolution Media Arts Society, board member and secretary for the New Orchestra Workshop (NOW) Society, board advisor to the James Black Gallery and several regionl art collectives. From 2013 - 2016 she was artist in residency (with LocoMotoArt) through the Vancouver Park Board and from 2011 - 2018 she was co-founder and manager of the Vancouver Experimental Theremin Orchestra.
Wynne has exhibited and performed internationally including: Arbetets Museum (Sweden), Gallery Factory (Seoul, Korea), Klondike Institute of Art & Culture, Vogue Theatre, Western Front, VIVO Media Arts Centre, Roundhouse Community Arts Centre, New Forms Festival, Utopia Festival of Women in Digital Culture, Signal + Noise Media Festival, Digital Carnival at Richmond World Festival and Renfrew Ravine Moon Festival.
