Wynne Palmer is a Vancouver-based interdisciplinary artist, independent curator, producer and mentor.
She brings to her current practice over three decades of professional graphic design, photography, media show production and several years working in both the west coast film and music industries.
As an artist, her personal research, art practice and collaborations often focus on thresholds and liminal spaces, where the natural and technological worlds converge. Her works are often temporary or ephemeral, bringing into question issues of identity, concepts of location and the philosophy of language within the collective consciousness.
With over 30yrs. of bringing a wide variety of media and show productions to the general public, via museums and science centres to media art festivals and galleries, Wynne locates her dissemination through social engagement and public art through various modes of collaborative pedagogy including: artist run culture, art/music and SciArt collaborations.
Wynne has just completed curating and co-producing an ambitious, four-year set of public art exhibitions, based on the four natural Elements: Water (2016), Land (2017), Air (2018) and Fire (2019).
