Art Week is back in Miami and we’re excited to host an exciting line-up of events: two panels with stellar lineups, private viewing hours, plus an invite-only event with the artists behind Aṣẹ: Afro Frequencies.
ARTECHOUSE is kicking off the week at its Miami Beach location with a special reception with artists Vince Fraser & Ursula Rucker on November 30th.

Tue, November 30 / 6-9pm / Invite Only
Private Reception + Meet & Greet with Vince Fraser & Ursula Rucker
ARTECHOUSE will host a private reception on November 30th with Vince Fraser and Ursula Rucker, the featured artists within Aṣẹ: Afro Frequencies, the current exhibition at our Miami location.
Inspired by the idea of aṣẹ, the West African concept relating to our power to produce change, Aṣẹ: Afro Frequencies – a multi-sensory immersive digital art exhibition, celebrates the historical, social, and cultural aspects of the Black experience through the perspective of these two celebrated artists. Employing unique applications of audio-visual, interactive technologies and boundary-pushing techniques to broadcast the frequencies of Fraser’s core concepts out into the world, Aṣẹ: Afro Frequencies considers historical frameworks reimagined, brought to life in a new digital performance context.
