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. Wynne 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 has exhibited and performed internationally including: Arbetets Museum in Norrkoping, Sweden; Klondike Institute of Art & Culture; Vogue Theatre; Western Front; VIVO Media Arts Centre; Roundhouse Community Arts Centre; Red Gate Revue; Gallery Factory in Seoul, Korea; Hot Art Wet City Gallery; New Forms Festival; Utopia: Festival of Women in Digital Culture; Signal + Noise Media Festival; Digital Carnival at Richmond World Festival; Renfrew Ravine Moon Festival; City of Vancouver public parks: Charleson Park for Oscillations (International Symposium on Electronic Art 2015), Queen Elizabeth Park, Tatlow Park.
Her work is in a number of public and private collections including Canada, Germany, UK and USA.
