Black Salt Collective is the work of Sarah Biscarra Dilley, Grace Rosario Perkins, Anna Luisa Petrisko, and Adee Roberson.

Founded in 2012, Black Salt embodies cultural and contemporary narratives. The work is cultural, but not “cultural” in the anthropological sense of the word, as cultural art is often seen through a Western lens. Black Salt is about contemporary non-linear identity in which experience results in atmosphere.

As a group, Black Salt Collective has shown at Artists’ Television Access, CalArts, The San Francisco Public Library as part of the RADAR series, MIX Festival, Outsider Festival, and Glitch Festival Australia. Black Salt Collective was also a recipient of an Alternative Exposure grant from San Francisco’s Southern Exposure in 2013 and nominated for a curatorial residency at SOMArts in 2014. The Collective‘s proposal was selected and opened in January 2016 in SOMArt’s Main Gallery. The exhibition “Visions into Infinite Archives” featured 30 intergenerational artists and filmmakers of color creating a boundless and liminal archive.

Currently, the collective is working on a book to be released in 2017 through Wolfman Books, Oakland.
