Shimmying fish and flowing Kanji immerse viewers in myth at ‘Continuity’

Three-legged crows, a symbol for the sun in much of East Asia, swoop along the walls and through the rooms. Stand still, and flowers will bloom at your feet. Schools of fish swim along the floor. Butterflies flutter. Kanji, if you put your hand near the writing sliding down the wall, will change into what it represents–lightning, fireflies, a tree. (Excerpt from the text)

TeamLab targets little minds with art designed to stimulate

Welcome to the latest sensory-tapping exhibition from teamLab, the art collective of self-described ultra-technologists who push creative boundaries at the intersection of art, technology, nature and high-tech fantasy, seducing a generation of kids (not to mention adults) in the process.

7 Exceptional Museums Opening This Fall

After being cooped up inside during the COVID-19 pandemic, many of us are itching to leave home.

The Asian Art Museum: Full of Art With a Past, Not of the Past

Approaching the Asian Art Museum’s beaux-arts building from Civic Center Plaza across the street, one might assume nothing has changed despite an almost six-year, $100 million-plus expansion and upgrading project. Completed in 2020, it is only now inaugurating its new exhibition spaces. But make your way to the entrance from neighborhood shops behind the museum and three murals proclaim otherwise. Visible through floor-to-ceiling windows are the line drawings of “Know My Name: A Memoir” by Chanel Miller; Jenifer K. Wofford’s color-rich “Pattern Recognition” fills a wall at street level; and, when you round the corner, the woman in Jas Charanjiva’s blue and pink “Don’t Mess With Me” looks down from a terrace, one hand raised in a brass-knuckled thumbs up. For a museum whose collection spans some 6,000 years to greet us with contemporary works from Asia and the Asian diaspora is tantamount to its shouting “Asian art is a phenomenon with a past, not of the past!”(Excerpt from the text)

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)
