teamLab now has a bathhouse and sauna with digital art in Roppongi

It’s easy to say teamLab is huge in Japan – not only are the teamLab Borderless and teamLab Planets Tokyo museums essential visits on any trip to Tokyo, the art collective just keeps opening new special exhibitions such as their exhibition at Kyoto's Toji Temple.

However, one of their latest Tokyo pop-ups, teamLab Reconnect, brings light art and digital projection to a whole new physical, and sweaty, level. Located in Roppongi, teamLab Reconnect combines a traditional sauna with the group’s otherworldly art. (Excerpt from the text)

Not only does Continuity mark Tokyo-based art collective teamLab’s first solo show in the United States, it’s also the first exhibition to be held at the Asian Art Museum’s Akiko Yamazaki and Jerry Yang Pavilion, a newly constructed 8,500-square-foot gallery space in San Francisco designed by celebrated Thai architect Kulapat Yantrasast of wHY. Yantrasast was asked to create a pavilion that would be able to house large, uninterrupted installations, and teamLab’s Continuity fit the end result like Cinderella’s foot in her glass slipper.(Excerpt from the text)
