Location: Zoom

Join multidisciplinary artist James Allister Sprang for two sessions of deep listening, supported by soundscapes of layered tape recordings and modulated synths. Sprang describes deep listening as a radical act meant to consciously bring awareness to the present moment while welcoming our bodies, our ancestors, our traumas, our pain, our longings, visions, and dreams. This workshop will be hosted as a no-video listening session on zoom.

James Allister Sprang is a multidisciplinary artist working across sound, sculpture, performance, photography, and poetry. His work lives in gallery spaces, theater spaces and the space generally found between the ears. This work is informed by Black radical and experimental traditions. He has shown and/or performed at institutions such as The Aldrich Museum, The Public Theater, Philadelphia Academy of Fine Art Museum, Baryshnikov Art Center, The Brooklyn Museum and Knockdown Center, amongst others.
