‘Ase: Afro Frequencies’ Exhibit Opens at Bellagio Art Gallery: Travel Weekly


“Ase: Afro Frequencies,” a multi-sensory digital art exhibit, 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 power to demand change, is the design concept behind the exhibit. It presents installations inspired by West African traditions, presenting them as symbols of black culture and hope.

“‘Ase: Afro Frequencies’ is unlike any exhibition we’ve hosted at the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art before, and its execution is outstanding,” said Tarissa Tiberti, Executive Director of MGM Resorts Art & Culture. “We are honored to provide visitors with an unforgettable experience that communicates messages of such cultural relevance and pushes the boundaries between art and technology.”
