Location: Noyes Gallery at Claridge, Atlantic City
Join us to celebrate the opening reception of Mina Cheon's solo exhibition at The Noyes Gallery at Claridge! This event is free and open to the public.
The Noyes Museum is pleased to present a solo exhibition of work by Mina Cheon, aka "Kim Il Soon", a Korean-American new media artist, scholar, and educator. A faculty member at Maryland Institute College of Art, she divides her time between Baltimore, New York, and Seoul, South Korea. Her debut in the United States was with Ethan Cohen Fine Arts at Art Asia Miami in 2012.
Cheon has exhibited her political pop art, known as “Polipop”, internationally. Polipop draws inspiration from global media and popular culture and makes work that intersects politics and pop art in subversive yet provocative ways. In particular, the artwork focuses on geopolitical and contested spaces and political pop icons while responding to Asia’s relationship with the Western world. Her work is expressed in diverse mediums such as new media, video, installation, and performance as well as traditinal media such as paintings and sculptural objects.
