Tokyo Art Collective To Bring Its Instagrammable Exhibitions To Europe

Good news for Instagrammers eyeing up new backdrops… The famous digital art collective teamLab — which has massively popular installations in Tokyo, Paris, and Singapore – will open a permanent exhibition in the Netherlands. Yep, teamLab is coming to Europe!

The group has exhibitions across the world, mainly in Asia, as well as San Francisco. Well known for their unique way of trying to bend boundaries, the team shows a new vision on the relationship between ‘self and the world’. The art group is made up of various specialists such as artists, programmers, engineers, CG animators, mathematicians and architects.

Expect mind-bending illusions, thousands of silk lamps, light sculptures or shimmering crystals that react to smartphones. You won’t see anything quite like this…

The world-famous Tokyo-based teamLab will bring its exhibitions to Europe

Lonely Planet reports that the new European exhibition will open in 2024. But, it’s sure to be worth the wait. The group will take over a new digital art venue called Nowhere in Utrecht’s green urban development project Wonderwoods.

Here, there will be the ‘Future Park’ area, a kind of educational amusement park that aims to encourage creative thinking and ‘Athletic Forest’, which as teamLab puts it, “promotes growth of the hippocampus of the brain and trains spatial awareness.”

TeamLab’s previous creations will convince you just how slick this is going to be…

Their exhibition at the world’s first digital musuem, Mori Building Digital Art Museum, is insanely cool. It uses 520 computers and 470 projectors for a unique art experience. Wander through various rooms, each one more creative than the next.

Their most famous work is Crystal Universe, which uses 50,000 LED lights to create patterns that you walk through.
