Valerie Tevere joined the Department of Media Culture in 2000. Her creative and research interests lie in the formation of mobile, performative and discursive-based social spaces, along with the re-articulation of radio programming within such locales. Through various media forms, her current projects (with long-term collaborator Angel Nevarez) 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.
Tevere (and Nevarez) have produced new projects for biennial and large-scale exhibitions including Manifesta 8, Spain; CASCO, Utrecht, NL; New Museum, NY; Henie Onstad Art Centre, Høvikodden/Oslo, Norway; Creative Time, NY; Museo de Arte Raúl Anguiano, Guadalajara, MX; and Henry Art Gallery, Seattle, WA.
Solo exhibitions and projects include: Botkyrka Konsthall, Sweden; the Staten Island Ferry, NYC; 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 viafarini, Milan, Italy; C/O, Careof, Milan, Italy; HDLU - Mestrovic Pavilion, Zagreb, Croatia.; Centre d'Art Passerelle, Brest, France; Contemporary Museum, Baltimore, MD; Govett Brewster Museum, New Plymouth, NZ; Eyebeam, NY; 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.
Tevere is a recipient of a Creative Capital emerging fields fellowship, an Art Matters grant, a Mellon Humanities fellowship at the CUNY Graduate Center, and as a part of the collaborative team neuroTransmitter (2001-2008), was awarded a New York Foundation for the Arts artist fellowship, an NEA project grant, a Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Art in Public Places grant, and a Franklin Furnace Fund for Performance Art Fellowship.
