about

 

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

 

She brings to her art practice three decades of professional graphic design, photography, media show production and several years working in both the west coast film and music industries.

 

Working predominantly with digital media including, photography, video, installation, voice and sound improvisation, her personal research, art practice and collaborations often focus on thresholds and liminal spaces, where the natural and technological worlds converge. She brings into question issues of identity, concepts of location and the philosophy of language within the collective consciousness.

 

As an independent curator and mentor, Wynne explores social engagement and public art through different modes of collaborative pedagogy including: critical making, STEAM, SciArt, Art/Music collaborations, improvisation, creative incubators, artist collectives and artist run culture.
