Ase: Afro Frequencies

Walk alongside African kings and queens as you explore timeless questions of identity, power, and belonging in this powerful and futuristic audiovisual exhibition.

Daily, Now - Nov 13, 2022.

Inspired by a, the Yoruba concept relating to our power to produce change, Ase: Afro Frequencies celebrates the Black experience through the perspectives of artist Vince Fraser and poet Ursula Rucker. The exhibition is an immersive, interactive and incredible story that everyone should experience. 

This exhibit serves not only as art but as a call to action in many ways -- to collaborate, to uplift one another, to learn and to progress. - Essence

Alongside the Immersion Gallery, you can explore other multi-sensory experiences -- like virtually trying on African masks -- combining film, technology, Afro-surrealism and poetry.

The elements in A portray the boundaries and the limitations that we experience as people of color in daily life, but at the same time, I'm also focusing on paying homage to our ancestors. In conceptualizing the exhibition with ARTECHOUSE Studio, I wanted to capture the balanced elements of sight and sound so that visitors could truly experience the power of African culture, said Vince Fraser.

The exhibition's visuals are echoed by pulsating rhythmic drums and stirring spoken words from Philadelphia-based poet and musician Ursula Rucker. A Leeway Foundation's Transformation Award winner, Rucker's words of empowerment, ancestry, and social justice powerfully narrate the exhibition.
