Angel Nevarez and Valerie Tevere’s interests lie in the formation of mobile, performative and discursive-based social spaces, along with the re-articulation of radio within such locales. Through various media forms, their current projects investigate contemporary music, dissent, and public fora, and move between the spatial simultaneity of performance and enunciation, reflecting upon the projection of political agency through transmission and song.
Solo exhibitions and projects include: the Staten Island Ferry, NYC; WUNP, unitednationsplaza, Berlin & Mexico City; Museo de Arte Raúl Anguiano, Guadalajara, Mexico; and Henry Art Gallery, Seattle, WA. Tevere and Nevarez have also show their work, lectured, and performed at The New Museum, NY; Creative Time, NY; viafarini, Milan, Italy; HDLU – Mestrovic Pavilion, Zagreb, Croatia; Centre d’Art Passerelle, Brest, France; Museu da Imagem e do Som, Sao Paulo, Brazil; the Vera List Center for Art and Politics at the New School, NY; the Radio Lab at Bauhaus University, Weimar, Germany; among others. Recent fellowships include: a 2008/09 Creative Capital fellowship and a 2009 Art Matters grant. From 2001-2008 Nevarez and Tevere worked under the collaborative name neuroTransmitter. Nevarez and Tevere have been in-residence at the International Artists Studio Program in Sweden (IASPIS), Stockholm in 2009. Nevarez is an artist, musician, and DJ. He is a lecturer at the MIT visual arts program in Boston. Tevere is Associate Professor of Media Culture at the City University of New York / College of Staten Island.
