Creativity Explored artist Marilyn Wong is featured in an exhibition at SOMArts.

Marilyn Wong is included in Visions Into Infinite Archives, on view at SOMArts, January 14 through February 10, 2016. The group exhibition curated by Black Salt Collective, features 30 artists of color and honors the non-linearity of time. Visions Into Infinite Archives not only imagines a future that challenges dominant histories and present moments of cyclical and institutional oppression, it births a universe where ancestral dreams and the hopes of descendants live and interact.
