Valerie Tevere and Angel Nevarez 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, and performance. Their research interests lie in the intersection between music, civic action, and historical moments that resonate through distinct musical instrumentation and sonorous traditions. Tevere and Nevarez have exhibited and screened their work at MoMA, Guggenheim Museum, Creative Time, and New Museum in NY; Manifesta 8/Spain; Casino Luxembourg; Henie Onstad Art Centre, Høvikodden, Norway; Taxispalais, Innsbruck, Austria, and elsewhere. Their first US survey exhibition was held at Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia in 2016. They have received awards from Creative Capital, Harpo Foundation, Art Matters, National Endowment for the Arts, and Franklin Furnace. Both were artists-in-residence at IASPIS, Stockholm, and recently at Pioneer Works, Brooklyn, and Grand Central Art Center, Santa Ana, California. Tevere is Professor of Media Culture at the College of Staten Island, CUNY. She received an MFA in Photography from California Institute of the Arts, a BA in Political Science from UC San Diego, and was a Studio Fellow at the Whitney Museum's Independent Study Program. Vimeo
