In her installation How we, I mean how I pray (2011/18) for Group Therapy, Wynne Greenwood creates a conversation that bridges self and culture by assigning mythic and pop-cartoon characters to stand in for pieces of an internal conversation. This workshop takes its cues from this practice. Participants will put different parts of themselves into conversation through creative renderings in drawing, object-making, and dialogue. Greenwood will lead participants through a series of thinking, feeling, and making prompts, intended to help identify pieces of dominant culture that have been internalized, and then imagine conversations that might get those pieces back out, possibly transforming them, and us, in the process. What happens when the different parts of yourself have a conversation? What might get revealed, created, and transformed?

Wynne Greenwood (American, b. 1977, Seattle, Washington) works with video, music, performance, and object-making to practice, in the artist’s words, “culture-healing.” Greenwood’s work has been included in exhibitions at a variety of spaces including the New Museum, New York; the Cooley Gallery, Reed College, Portland; Fanta Spazio, Milan; Crush Repeat, Seattle; the 2004 Whitney Biennial, New York; The Kitchen, New York; Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects, Los Angeles; and Soloway, Brooklyn, New York. She is represented by Fourteen30 Contemporary in Portland, OR. Greenwood teaches video and interdisciplinary practices at Seattle University.
