Wynne Palmer is a Vancouver-based integrated media artist, an independent curator, arts administrator and educator. Past professional work experience informing her practice include: government, corporate, non-profit and freelance graphic design and photography; west coast film and music industries; fine art, media and event curatorial and production; board experience and arts administration.
She draws inspiration from occupying intersections of seemingly contradictory ideas. Her 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. She is a serial collaborator, interested in the dynamics of improvisation and participatory art practice, collective collaboration, social engagement and public art. She has an interest in non-traditional educational models, art practices and exhibition spaces.
Wynne is currently a co-founder and member of the Vancouver Experimental Theremin Orchestra (VETO), VIVO Media Arts Centre instructor and NOW Society board member and secretary. She is an exhibitor with the digital eco-art group LocoMotoArt, and is an artist in residency with the Vancouver Park Board through the Fieldhouse Artists in Residency Programme.
She has exhibited and performed internationally including: Vogue Theatre; Western Front; Klondike Institute of Art & Culture; Arbetets Museum in Norrkoping, Sweden; Red Gate Revue; VIVO Media Arts Centre; Roundhouse Community Arts Centre; Hot Art Wet City Gallery; Gallery Factory in Seoul, Korea; Digital Carnival at Richmond World Festival; New Forms Festival; Utopia: Festival of Women in Digital Culture; Signal + Noise Media Festival; Renfrew Ravine Moon Festival; City of Vancouver public parks: Tatlow Park, Queen Elizabeth Park and Charleson Park for Oscillations (2015 International Symposium on Electronic Art).
Her work is in a number of public and private collections including Canada, Germany, UK and USA.
