TeamLab Borderless Shanghai, a new exhibition space on the west bank of the Huangpu River, will open to the public on Nov 5.
The 6,600-square-meter space is “a maples art museum that features the borderless art works created by the teamLab group”, according to Toshiyuki Inoko, founder and chief representative of the group.
More than 50 projects are presented in Shanghai, some of which are site-specific installations created especially for the city.
Since its founding in 2001, teamLab has focused its efforts on creating new media art installations that explore the relationship between humans and the world. The group now consists of more than 600 scientists and artists, and presents interactive exhibitions in places such as the US, Europe and China.
Borderless Shanghai is the first long-term exhibition space of teamLab in China.
