Angel Nevarez (b. Mexico City, Mexico)
Valerie Tevere (b. Chicago, IL, USA)
Angel Nevarez and Valerie Tevere 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. Their research interests lie in the intersection between music, civic action, and historical moments that resonate through distinct musical instrumentation and sonorous traditions. The artists have produced itinerant and discursive-based works in video installation, lyric writing, transmission, and performance, created together, and in project-based collaborations with musicians, radio practitioners, and city agencies.
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; The Henry Art Gallery, Seattle, WA; Taxispalais, Innsbruck, Austria, and elsewhere. The first US survey of their work was exhibited at Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia in 2016.
They have received fellowships and awards from the Guggenheim Foundation, Creative Capital, Harpo Foundation, Art Matters, National Endowment for the Arts, and Franklin Furnace. Both Nevarez and Tevere were Studio Fellows at The Whitney Museum Independent Study Program, artists-in-residence at the International Artists Studio Program in Sweden, and recently at Pioneer Works, Brooklyn, and Grand Central Art Center, Santa Ana, CA. Upcoming residencies and projects include Artpace, San Antonio, TX; Marble House Project, Dorset, VT; and Antenna Works in New Orleans, LA.
Nevarez is a musician and part-time faculty at The New School/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.
PNCA’s Low-Residency MFA is organized to be an innovative hybrid of an MFA degree and an artist residency. The low-residency program has a longer degree-completion time (3 years), flexible schedules, intensive residency periods, lower cost of attendance, and the distance-learning component, which does not require students to permanently relocate. Furthermore, the program is interdisciplinary, offering artists of all media and stages of their development the opportunity to refine their vision
