Angel Nevarez and Valerie Tevere’s practice spans well over a decade of projects and performances that engage with contemporary music and sound, radio, dissent, and public fora. Their works move between the spatial simultaneity of performance and enunciation, reflecting upon political agency through lyrics, audio, and transmission.

Solo exhibitions and projects include: Botkyrka Konsthall, Sweden; the Staten Island Ferry, NYC; Museo de Arte Raúl Anguiano, Guadalajara, Mexico; Henry Art Gallery, Seattle, WA; and their forthcoming survey exhibition at ICA, Philadelphia (Feb. 2016). Nevarez and Tevere’s work has been exhibited, performed, and screened at international venues including The Guggenheim Museum, MoMA, New Museum, and Creative Time in New York; Manifesta 8/ Spain; Henie Onstad Art Centre, Høvikodden/Oslo, Norway; Casino Luxembourg, LU; C/O, Careof, Milan, Italy; 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. Alongside their practice, Nevarez is a musician and Faculty in the MFA Fine Arts Program at SVA, NY, and Tevere is Professor of Media Culture at the College of Staten Island / CUNY.
