Angel Nevarez and Valerie Tevere are interdisciplinary artists whose practice spans over twenty 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 presented at the Institute of Contemporary Art, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, in 2016.

Their fellowships and grants include a Guggenheim Fellowship, 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, artists-in-residence at the International Artists Studio Program in Sweden; Pioneer Works, Brooklyn; Grand Central Art Center, Santa Ana, California; Artpace, San Antonio, Texas; Marble House Project, Vermont; and Antenna Gallery, New Orleans.

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.
