Please join artist Mina Cheon (천민정) as she welcomes your visit to her studio through an Instagram Live event hosted by the Asia Society in New York, as a part of the Asia Society Triennial pre-events, “Talking Dreams: Instagram Live Session 3 With Mina Cheon.” As Cheon converses with the artistic director of the Triennial and director of Asia Society Museum Boon Hui Tan, she will share her artistic process, upcoming projects and exhibitions, and the preparation for the Triennial participation. Starting with a tour of the K-Town Studios building, she will make her way up to her Studio on the third floor. Think “Dreaming Unification” in this Talking Dream Series. Please catch the event @AsiaSociety on Instagram Thursday 13 August 2020, 3 – 4 PM ET.
The Inaugural Asia Society Triennial is from October 27, 2020 to June 27, 2021 and features 40+ contemporary Asian artists from around the world. Mina Cheon is a Korean new media artist, scholar, and educator who lives and works between Baltimore, New York, and Seoul and exhibits her political pop art known as “Polipop” internationally. As a part of the Korean diaspora, Cheon’s art results from a lifetime of working with a postcolonial and comparative cultural lens. The resulting work is in historic alignment with appropriation art and global activism art and focuses on North Korean awareness, Korean unification, and global peace projects. Her next iteration of these works will be featured during the Triennial months through multiple platforms.Learn More
