James Allister Sprang

Listening Sessions

New Work in Progress
Wed, July 12, 7:30pm

Aquifer of the Weave
Sat, July 15, 12pm

Trinity Episcopal Church, 247 Bates St.

Sprang describes the Listening Sessions as opportunities to turn away from the frantic pace of the modern world. Aquifer of the Weave and New Work in Progress are 45-minute original compositions that will be experienced over two sessions of somatic listening. 

Sprang welcomes visitors to bring something comfortable to lie on as the works invites you to tune in to your bodies, your ancestors, your traumas, your pain, your longings, visions, and dreams.

“Aquifer of the Weave presents layered histories while simultaneously eliciting critical self-reflection in the contemporary moment. –– Mev Luna, Artist and Assistant Professor at The New School

The son of Caribbean immigrants, Sprang considers his relationship to Diasporic timelines while weaving together his multimedia work, to create sensory poems for the spirit. His work is informed by the Black interior as well as radical and experimental traditions. Sprang’s work lives in gallery spaces, theater spaces and the space between the ears. In 2022, Sprang was awarded both the Pew Fellowship and the Knight Foundation Art + Tech Fellowship for his work with the only 4DSound system in America.
