An Ear to the Storm by James Allister Sprang
A part of Wanderings and Wonderings

Storm King Art Center
Beginning at Siah Armajani's Monument for Two Anarchists: Gabriella Antolini and Alberto Antolini

Using instruments he developed and coded during his 2018 residency at Shandaken: Storm King, Sprang will perform a soundscape in response to the natural and industrial sounds present on the Storm King grounds, in real time.
James Allister Sprang is a first-generation Caribbean-American who works across mediums to investigate poetics, performance, gesture, and their documentation. This work is informed by the black radical tradition. Sprang has read, shown, or performed at institutions such as the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, the Apollo Theater, Abrons Arts Center, the Brooklyn Museum, The Public Theater, David Nolan Gallery, AUTOMAT Gallery, Vox Populi, Baryshnikov Arts Center, Emerson-Dorsch Gallery, FringeArts, Knockdown Center, and The Kitchen.
