Biography

Wynne Greenwood teaches courses in video, photography and multimedia artmaking. Recent courses include “Advanced Video Art” and “Practices in Interdisciplinary & Collaborative Arts.” As a teacher, she is committed to facilitating accountable creative expression, and brings to the classroom a range of experiences from DIY music performance, psychodrama group therapy and youth education. Greenwood is a video artist and musician whose work explores self-making. She often works with video and music in relationship to installation and object-making. Throughout her career she has moved between institutional and anti-institutional spaces, and is committed to opening up access to creative making and sharing. From 1999 - 2006, Greenwood created and performed the multimedia art-band Tracy + the Plastics. Tracy + the Plastics blurred the boundaries between contemporary art and music worlds with humorous, politically engaged performances, crossing venues and contexts from DIY house shows to art institutions. She has worked collaboratively with artists Gretchen Bennett, Matthew Offenbacher, Fawn Krieger and K8 Hardy.

Greenwood has participated in exhibitions and performances at a variety of venues, including the New Museum, New York; the Cooley Gallery, Reed College; the Kitchen, New York; Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects, Los Angeles; the Frye Art Museum, Seattle; and Fanta Spazio, Milan, Italy. Her work is represented by Fourteen30 Contemporary, Portland, OR.
