Angel Nevarez (b. Mexico City, Mexico) and Valerie Tevere (Chicago, USA) are New York based interdisciplinary artists whose collaborative practice includes projects that actuate music and sound, radio, dissent, and the cultural complexities of the public sphere. The artists have produced works in video installation, lyric writing, performance, and photography. Their research interests lie in the intersection between music, civic action, and historical moments that resonate through distinct musical instrumentation and sonorous traditions.
Angel Nevarez and Valerie Tevere was invited to Residence Botkyrka in the autumn 2010 when they participated in Fittja Open with an open call for new protest songs. The work Another Protest Song is a growing online archive where everyone is welcome to contribute with their songs.
Angel Nevarez and Valerie Tevere, the artists also presented the exhibition Dissonance (6 June – 17 October 2010) in Botkyrka Konsthall in Tumba.
