Are Immersive Art Exhibitions Replacing Traditional Museums?

Already a fixture in Europe and Asia, digital art spaces are sprouting up across the U.S., promising immersive experiences that can transport viewers. The expansive, room-wrapping format of these shows riffs on an experience created by teamLab, an art collective based in Tokyo. In 2001, they debuted their landmark digital art technology, creating interactive rooms that grew into an eponymous museum in Tokyo, which opened in 2018. It had 2.3 million visitors its first year, the largest attendance for a single-artist institution in the world.(Excerpt from the text)

Up to My Eyeballs in Art at Superblue

Feeling a little like Alice in Wonderland as gigantic digital images of red, white and cream-colored dahlias budded, bloomed and shattered on the wall in front of me, I dithered over what I was witnessing. Is this a forward step in the march of modernism or a debasement of art into theme-park entertainment?

The dazzling floral extravaganza by teamLab, a digital art collective based in Tokyo, is the dynamic centerpiece of an inaugural exhibition at Superblue, a Miami “experiential art center” (or an E.A.C. to initiates) that begins invitational previews next week before opening to the public on April 22. Backed by the juggernaut Pace Gallery and Laurene Powell Jobs’s Emerson Collective, Superblue is the blue-chip contestant in the rapidly growing field of immersive art.(Excerpt from the text)

TeamLab Opens a Digital Art Sauna, and Other News

TeamLab is known for mind-bending visuals that push boundaries of how to experience art, but this feels like a first. In Tokyo’s Roppongi district, the digital art collective set up a giant tent complete with bursting flower walls and hundreds of butterflies darting around a screen of tiny water particles. It also includes a sauna, allowing visitors to navigate three art installations in their bathing suits. “Art is traditionally exhibited in luxurious places like palaces or museums,” says TeamLab member Takashi Kudo. “We wanted to create a luxurious state of mind for people to experience it.” Social distancing and ample ventilation were considered so the experience, which runs through the end of August, meets government standards.(Excerpt from the text)

Japan’s teamLab melds museum and sauna in fresh digital art experience

A wall of flower petals bursts into a thousand fragments. A huge ball levitates in the air, turning from red to blue to purple. Hundreds of butterflies dart around a screen of tiny water particles.

This is not a modern art museum, but the latest creation of Japan’s teamLab collective of engineers, artists and architects, anchored around a maze of seven saunas lit up in hues of red, green and yellow.(Excerpt from the text)
