Angel Nevarez & Valerie Tevere present Sound Check

Oct 9, 2019
6:00 – 7:00pm Artist Lecture, 7:00 – 8:00pm Karaoke Performance (Everyone's invited)
in the event space

SPACE is pleased to announce a performance by multidisciplinary artists, Angel Nevarez and Valerie Tevere.

Angel Nevarez and Valerie Tevere will share their artistic practice and research as a performative lecture which combs the intersections of the perceptual fields of sound, music, the voice, assembly, and associative public spaces. Following the lecture, visitors are invited to take to the stage with Another Protest Song: Karaoke with a Message, an ongoing performance that looks to the karaoke songbook as potential for political enunciation.

This latest installment of the artists' practice will happen at SPACE on October 9, 2019 as a two-part event: At 6pm, Nevarez and Tevere will give an artist lecture, and at 7pm, they will host a karaoke session. Both events are free and open to the public.

Artist bio:

Angel Nevarez and Valerie Tevere (New York, NY) are multidisciplinary artists whose projects investigate contemporary music and sound, the electromagnetic spectrum, dissent, and public fora. Their research interests lie in the intersection between art, music, and civic action/responsibility, and historical moments that resonate through distinct musical instrumentation and sonorous traditions. The duo have exhibited and screened their work at MoMA, The Guggenheim Museum, Creative Time, and New Museum in New York; Manifesta 8/ Spain; Museo de Arte Raúl Anguiano, Guadalajara, Mexico; Henie Onstad Art Centre, Høvikodden/Oslo, Norway, and elsewhere. The first US survey of their work was exhibited at Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia in 2016. Both were Studio Fellows at The Whitney Museum’s Independent Study Program, artists-in-residence at the International Artists Studio Program in Sweden (IASPIS), and have received grants from Creative Capital, Art Matters, the NEA, and Franklin Furnace. Tevere is Professor of Media Culture at the City University of New York, College of Staten Island. Nevarez is a musician, and Faculty at Parsons School of Design, and the MFA Fine Arts Program at the School of Visual Arts, New York.
