The interests of New York-based multimedia artists Valerie Tevere, Associate Professor of Media Culture, CUNY, College of Staten Island, and Angel Nevarez, lecturer at MIT’s visual arts program, 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. In 2009 they were the recipients of a Creative Capital fellowship, a grant from Art Matters, and were artists-in-residence at the International Artists Studio Program in Sweden (IASPIS), Stockholm.
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.
