James Allister Sprang’s work exists in gallery spaces, theater spaces and the space generally found between the ears. He tells stories informed by black radical and experimental traditions.

For the past fifteen years Sprang has sustained the understanding that storytelling is at the foundation of all disciplines. Sprang has built relationships with communities and audiences across experimental theater, sound art, conceptual art, performance art, poetry and spoken word with a multidisciplinary practice that cuts through segregated stories, timelines, archives and imaginations.

James has completed numerous residencies  domestically and internationally. He has shown or performed at institutions such as The Kitchen, The Brooklyn Museum, PAFA Museum, Storm King Art Center, The Public Theater, Baryshnikov Art Center, Abrons Arts Center, The Apollo Theater, Pioneer Works, On The Boards, Knockdown Center and The Painted Bride Art Center.
