SOMArts Cultural Center presents Visions Into Infinite Archives, a group exhibition curated by Black Salt Collective that manifests alternative futures as well as alternative pasts to explore the expansive interconnectedness of individual and cultural narratives. On view with accompanying public programming January 14 to February 10, 2016, Visions Into Infinite Archives features artwork in many media from 30 artists of color contributing to an archive that defies a Western, anthropological approach to recording and sharing histories and trajectories of cultural experience. Through murals, light and textile installations, ritualistic expressions and film screenings, the exhibition puts the past and future into conversation with present moments of cyclical and institutional oppression to create a space where healing can take place and evolve.

Visions Into Infinite Archives, opening with a free public reception on Thursday, January 14, 6pm to 9pm, is the second of three SOMArts Commons Curatorial Residency exhibitions in the 2015–16 season. Oakland and Los Angeles based Black Salt Collective utilizes the residency opportunity to mount their first large-scale exhibition, featuring the work of collective members Sarah Biscarra Dilley, Grace Rosario Perkins, Anna Luisa Petrisko and Adee Roberson, as well as additional artists selected by the collective.

Black Salt Collective honors the non-linearity of time with an infinite archive of universal depths. “Comprised of objects, bodies, conversations, and multimedia artworks, this universe is in constant dialogue and flux,” said the Black Salt Collective, “Negating the pretense of an archive that distorts and fractures the relationship between living culture, object and community our archive supersedes these binds through complex and interdependent narratives held within and beyond us. Visions into Infinite Archives manifests the dynamic capacity of a boundless and liminal archive.”
