Angel Nevarez/Valerie Tevere
Visual Arts Residency

Angel Nevarez and Valerie Tevere are multidisciplinary collaborators who have been working together since 2001 (2001-2008 under the collaborative name neuroTransmitter). Their 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 (b. Mexico City, Mexico) is an artist, musician, and faculty member in the MFA Fine Arts Program at the School of Visual Arts in New York. Tevere (b. Chicago, IL. USA) is an artist and Professor of Media Culture at the College of Staten Island / City University of New York (CSI/CUNY). Their fellowships include a 2009 Creative Capital Fellowship, a 2009 Art Matters Grant, and a 2006 Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Art in Public Places Grant. 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. The first US survey of Nevarez and Tevere’s work was exhibited at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia in 2016.
