"Ase: Afro Frequencies," a multisensory digital art exhibition, opened at the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art on Dec. 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 Yoruban philosophy of the power to exact change, is the design concept behind the exhibition. It features installations inspired by West African traditions, presenting them as symbols of Black culture and hope.

"'Ase: Afro Frequencies' is unlike any exhibit we've welcomed to Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art previously, and its execution is remarkable," said Tarissa Tiberti, executive director of MGM Resorts Art & Culture. "It's 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."

"Ase: Afro Frequencies" will be open daily through April 18 at the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art.
