Angel Nevarez

Part-time Faculty

Angel Nevarez is an artist and musician who works collaboratively with his long-time partner, Valerie Tevere. Together, they produce projects that actuate music and sound, radio, dissent, and the cultural complexities of the public sphere. The artists have created works in video installation, lyric writing, performance, and photography. Nevarez and Tevere’s research interests lie in the intersection between music, civic action, and historical moments that resonate through distinct musical instrumentation and sonorous traditions. Their fellowships and grants include a 2020 Guggenheim Fellowship, a Creative Capital fellowship, a Harpo Foundation award, an Art Matters grant, a National Endowment for the Arts project grant, and a Franklin Furnace Performance Art fellowship. Both Nevarez and Tevere were Studio Fellows at The Whitney Museum’s Independent Study Program, artists-in-residence at the International Artists Studio Program in Sweden; Pioneer Works, Brooklyn, NY; Grand Central Art Center, Santa Ana, CA. Recent residencies include Artpace, San Antonio, TX; Antenna Spillways Residency, New Orleans, LA; and Marble House Project, Dorset, VT.
