about ::

 

Wynne Palmer is a Vancouver-based integrated media artist, independent curator, producer and mentor.

 

Thirty years of professional work experience informing her practice include: professional graphic design and photography, museum and science centre show production, west coast film and music industries, event curation 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 practices. She likes to challenge herself and others by supporting innovative ways of thinking and doing, including social engagement through non-traditional educational models, art practices and exhibition spaces.

 

Currently, Wynne is co-founder and manager of the Vancouver Experimental Theremin Orchestra,

curator and co-producer of Digital Carnival for Cinevolution Media Arts Society, board member and secretary for the New Orchestra Workshop  (NOW) Society, and an advisor to several art collectives and artist run galleries. From 2013 - 2016 she was artist in residency with the Vancouver Park Board.


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. City of Vancouver public parks, including: Charleson Park for the International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA 2015), Tatlow Park, Renfrew Park and Queen Elizabeth Park.

 

Her work is in a number of public and private collections including Canada, Germany, UK and USA.
