Working across video and performance, Wynne Greenwood explores constructions of the self, tracing how subjectivities are formed in public and private spaces and always in relation to others—be they imagined or real-life personae. Her work has been included in performances and exhibitions at independent and institutional spaces internationally, including the Tate Modern, Whitney Biennial, The Kitchen and On the Boards. From 1999 – 2006, Greenwood performed the multimedia art-band Tracy + the Plastics. Upon ending the project, Greenwood shifted her focus to installation and object-based work, exhibiting with Susan Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects and Lawrimore Project in Seattle. Most recently, Greenwood participated in Anti-Establishment, a group show at Bard College’s Center for Curatorial Studies, and released a full-length music album A Fire To Keep You Warm. Greenwood also teaches performance and video through workshops and after-school programs.

Greenwood is currently exhibiting and participating in a six-month residency at the New Museum in New York City, naming a new, yet-to-be-imagined character orbiting beyond the Plastics’ cosmology. “Kelly” is a platform in which Greenwood will premiere the complete, recently re-recorded and newly mastered archive of Tracy + the Plastics’ performances — bringing this archive into dialogue with more recent work exploring the artist’s interest in what she has called “culture healing.” “Kelly” will consider the poetics of the pause while mining electric gaps of meaning in conversation and offering possibilities for feminist, queer, and other experimental models of collaboration and dialogue.
