Wynne Palmer is a Vancouver-based integrated media artist, an independent curator, arts administrator and educator. Past professional work experience informing her practice include: professional graphic design and photography; west coast film and music industries; event curation and production; arts administration and board experience.
Wynne 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.
Currently, Wynne is co-founder and manager of the Vancouver Experimental Theremin Orchestra,
co-producer and curator of Digital Carnival for Cinevolution Media Arts Society, board member and secretary for the NOW Society, volunteer for the Crista Dahl Media Library & Archive and advisor to various regional art collectives and organizations.
Wynne has exhibited and performed internationally including: Arbetets Museum in Norrkoping, Sweden; Klondike Institute of Art & Culture; Vogue Theatre; Gallery Factory in Seoul, Korea; Hot Art Wet City Gallery; Western Front; VIVO Media Arts Centre; Roundhouse Community Arts Centre; The Merge;
