Mina Cheon is a Korean-American global new media artist, scholar, and educator who divides her time between Korea and the United States. Cheon has exhibited her political pop art known as “Polipop” internationally and draws inspiration from global media and popular culture to produce work that intersects politics and pop art in evocative ways. While she creates works that range in medium from new media, video, installation, performance, and public projects to traditional media of painting and sculptures, the content of the work is in historic alignment to appropriation art and global activism art. Cheon has exhibited her work at numerous collections and locations domestically and internationally, is currently on the Board of Directors of the New Media Caucus of the College Art Association, an Associate Editor of the academic journal Media-N, and a Full-time Professor at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA).
