Angel Nevarez (b. Mexico City, Mexico)
Valerie Tevere (b. Chicago, IL. USA)

Angel Nevarez and Valerie Tevere are interdisciplinary artists whose practice spans over eighteen years of projects that actuate music and sound, radio, dissent, and the cultural complexities of the public sphere. The artists have produced works in video installation, lyric writing, performance, and photography. Their research interests lie in the intersection between music, civic action, and historical moments that resonate through distinct musical instrumentation and sonorous traditions.

Nevarez and Tevere have exhibited and screened their work at The Museum of Modern Art, The Guggenheim Museum, Creative Time, New Museum, and Paul Kasmin Gallery in New York; Manifesta 8/Spain; Museo Raúl Anguiano, Guadalajara, Mexico; Casino Luxembourg, LU; Henie Onstad Art Centre, Høvikodden, Norway; Taxispalais, Innsbruck, Austria, and elsewhere. The first US survey of their work was exhibited at Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia in 2016.

Their fellowships and grants include a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Creative Capital fellowship, an Art Matters grant and a Franklin Furnace Performance Art fellowship. Both Nevarez and Tevere were Studio Fellows at The Whitney Museum’s Independent Study Program, artists-in-residence at the International Artists Studio Program in Sweden, and recently at Pioneer Works, Brooklyn, and Grand Central Art Center, Santa Ana, California. They are currently in-residence at Artpace in San Antonio, Texas, with forthcoming residencies and projects with Marble House Project in Vermont and Antenna Works in New Orleans, LA.

Nevarez is an artist, musician, and teaches at Parsons School of Design, New York.

Tevere received an MFA in photography from California Institute of the Arts and is Professor of Media Culture at the College of Staten Island / City University of New York.
