This is the world’s first large-scale exhibition providing you with a single space where you can experience an exhibition of previously showcased artwork and an amusement park, both by teamLab, an ultra-technologists group dedicated to developing creative projects primarily within the digital arena. This exhibition, to be held at the Miraikan National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation, will be an event of unprecedented scale. It will incorporate two major exhibitions previously held by teamLab: their “Digital Art” exhibition, which has garnered great attention in art galleries around the world, including a renowned gallery in New York where it received great praise in the summer of 2014; and the project “Learn and Play! teamLab Future Park”, an art project that has stimulated the development and brought great fun to many children from around the country. This event will systematically showcase both new and old artworks from teamLab’s past artwork exhibition and amusement park, providing an unparalleled opportunity for visitors to experience the full spectrum of this group’s fascinating work.
The exhibition hall will be home to a total of 18 works, including both new and well-established artworks and amusement park art installations, featuring a scale and size that goes beyond imagination, and which will provide you with fresh and astonishing experiences. This event will also use leading-edge technology to show what lies behind the worldwide fascinating concept of teamLab (team = people and Lab = experimental laboratory), allowing us to get closer to the secret of teamLab’s creation.
Visitors will be able to freely explore and experience a variety of artworks from two completely different exhibitions: an art exhibition providing overwhelmingly beautiful spaces, and an amusement park where they will be able to use all their energy by moving their hands and bodies. This event is not only aimed at youngsters such as students, who are nowadays the most common type of visitor in art galleries and art museums, or the senior generations, who attend exhibitions led by their interest in Japanese culture. It has also been designed for families with children who do not normally have the opportunity to visit art galleries, so that both parents and children can have great fun together. Regardless of your field of interest, whether it is education, leading-edge technology, business, advertising, fashion, and the like, we sincerely hope you will find the time to attend this exhibition. You will be sure to experience new worlds that transcend the boundaries of art, technology, play, and learning.
By experiencing the digital art worlds created by teamLab, perhaps you will be able to link up the past with the present and create new paths toward the future, discovering the true nature and the many possibilities that can be found in technology and art, as well as learning and play.
