About the artist

Engaging with an artistic practice that encompasses visual art, filmmaking, and writing, Glenn “Sonnie” Wooden studies singular human experiences through an ontological and ethnographic-like process by investigating the environments people inhabit, the food they consume, and their corporeal form as those factors relate to class, race, existentialism, and violence. Wooden is from Chicago, Illinois, and currently resides in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He received a BA from the University of Iowa in 2018 and a MFA from the University of Pennsylvania in 2020.
