teamLab to open 10,000sqm immersive museum in Beijing

11th October 2022

(China) – Art collective teamLab will launch dynamic art space teamLab Massless Beijing in November 2022. Based on the idea that digital technology liberates human expression from material substances, the exhibition will present large-scale installations with no physical boundary separating them from the viewer’s body, creating a heavily immersive experience.

One of teamLab’s largest permanent museums to date, teamLab Massless Beijing will be housed permanently on the top floor of Beijing’s Chaoyang Joy City mall, and will utilise the expansive 10,000sqm of floor space and 11-metre-high ceilings to create an “ever-changing, interactive environment that explores physicality and the borderless continuity between the self and the world”.

teamLab Massless Beijing will feature a representative selection of more than 40 teamLab works, including the likes of Massless Clouds Between Sculpture and Life, Resonating Microcosms – Solidified Light Colour, Massless Suns and Dark Spheres,  Floating in the Falling Universe of Flowers and The Infinite Crystal Universe.

On the same floor as teamLab Massless will be U2 by UCCA (U2 for short), a brand-new art museum founded by UCCA Center for Contemporary Art, China’s leading contemporary art institution. The inaugural exhibition of U2 will be a collaboration with London’s Victoria and Albert Museum to present Alice: Curiouser and Curiouser. Exploring its origins, adaptations and reinventions over 157 years, this immersive and theatrical show charted the evolution of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland from manuscript to a global phenomenon beloved by all ages.

teamLab Massless Beijing will open in 19 November 2022.
