Alena Mehić joined Cumberland University as an Assistant Professor of Art in 2022 and teaches various courses in the Studio Art program, including painting, drawing, and professional development. A study of absence, aesthetic markers, and political relics, her practice focuses on the transformation of national memory and historical revisionism.

Her most recent research endeavors have involved exploring science fiction in the context of post-socialist landscapes and considering how it relates to ideas of hope, utopia, and infrastructural and technological advancement alongside the risks of nuclear war, privacy concerns, and the general unknown.

In 2023, she was a resident at Loghaven in Knoxville, TN and had her work featured in her solo exhibition The Hum at the Contemporary Art Museum of Raleigh.
