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, including those of the Caribbean.

For the past fifteen years James has sustained a multidisciplinary practice with 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 timelines and re-works the languages of American archives and imagination.

Sprang has completed several residencies both domestically and internationally. He has shown/performed at institutions such as The Public Theater, Baryshnikov Art Center, Vox Populi, Abrons Arts Center, The Apollo Theater, The Brooklyn Museum, Knockdown Center, Pioneer Works and The Kitchen.
