Angel Nevarez (b. 1970, Mexico City, Mexico)
Valerie Tevere (b. 1970, Chicago, IL. USA)
Angel Nevarez and Valerie Tevere (based in New York) are multidisciplinary artists whose projects and research investigate contemporary music and sound, the electromagnetic spectrum, dissent, and public fora. Their interests lie in the formation of itinerant, performative, and discursive-based social spaces with works that move between the spatial simultaneity of performance and enunciation, reflecting upon political agency through lyrics, audio, and transmission.
Nevarez and Tevere have exhibited internationally at MoMA, New York; Paul Kasmin Gallery, New York; Henie Onstad Art Center, H°vikodden, Norway; Manifesta 8, Murcia, Spain; Creative Time, New York; The New Museum, New York; Museo de Arte Ra˙l Anguiano, Guadalajara, Mexico; ICA, Philadelphia; The Henry Art Gallery, Seattle, WA; Museu da Imagem e do Som, Sao Paulo, Brazil; among others. Their recent fellowships include a Creative Capital fellowship, an Art Matters grant, an NEA project grant, and a Franklin Furnace Performance Art fellowship. Both Nevarez and Tevere were Studio Fellows at The Whitney Museum's Independent Study Program and artists-in-residence at the International Artists Studio Program in Sweden (IASPIS), Stockholm, SE.
Nevarez is Lecturer at MIT's program in Art, Culture, and Technology.
Tevere is a Mellon Resident Fellow at the Center for the Humanities, The Graduate Center, CUNY and Associate Professor of Media Culture at College of Staten Island, CUNY.
