“Ase: Afro Frequencies”, a multisensory digital art exhibition, opened at the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art on December 23.
The exhibition, a celebration of the historical, social and cultural aspects of the black experience, is presented by Artechouse in collaboration with Afro-surrealist visual artist Vince Fraser and poet Ursula Rucker.
Ase (pronounced “ah-shay”), a Yoruba philosophy of the power to demand change, is the design concept behind the exhibition. It presents installations inspired by West African traditions, presenting them as symbols of black culture and hope.
â¢ Forum: Cataloging the Black Travel Experience
â’Ase: Afro Frequencies’ is unlike any of the exhibitions we’ve hosted at the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art before, and its execution is outstanding,â said Tarissa Tiberti, Executive Director of MGM Resorts Art & Culture. “It is an honor for us to offer visitors an unforgettable experience that communicates messages with such cultural relevance in addition to pushing the boundaries between art and technology.”
