Over the last few years, teamLab’s digital art has been transforming the museum experience. The international acclaim and popularity of teamLab exhibitions demonstrate
the growing interest in immersive, experiential art. Notably, teamLab Borderless
in Tokyo (scheduled to relocate to central Tokyo in January 2024) took
a Guinness World Record for the world’s most visited single-artist museum in 2019, receiving 2,198,284 visitors from over 160 countries and regions. The museum gained much international recognition, notably earning
a spot in TIME Magazine's 2019 list of the World's Greatest Places and securing
the Award for Outstanding Achievement at the 25th Thea Awards.
Furthermore, teamLab Planets
in Tokyo has received approximately one million visitors from 182 countries and regions outside of Japan in the six months from March to August 2023. It has also been reported
that approximately one in ten visitors to Japan from overseas are visiting the exhibition. In September 2023, it claimed
the title of Asia's Leading Tourist Attraction at the World Travel Awards 2023.
To date, a total of more than 35 million people have visited teamLab exhibitions and museums worldwide.
teamLab exhibitions have been held in cities worldwide, including New York, London, Paris, Singapore, Silicon Valley, Beijing, and Melbourne, among others. teamLab museums and large-scale permanent exhibitions include teamLab Borderless
and teamLab Planets
in Tokyo, teamLab Borderless
in Shanghai, teamLab SuperNature

, and, of course, Utrecht
teamLab’s works are in the permanent collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney; Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide; Asian Art Museum, San Francisco; Asia Society Museum, New York; Borusan Contemporary Art Collection, Istanbul; National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; and Amos Rex, Helsinki, among others.
teamLab will newly open a permanent, solo exhibition at Nowhere, a 3,000-square-meter art space located on the ground floor of the Wonderwoods development. The as-of-yet untitled exhibition
will comprise a complex, three-dimensional space, taking advantage of the scale of the building, and will consist of teamLab's artworks that immerse visitors in an interactive world, accompanied by a strong sense of physicality.
The exhibition will feature some of teamLab’s latest artworks, as well as an extensive selection of works from the Athletics Forest
and Future Park
projects. The Athletics Forest is a creative athletic space that trains spatial awareness of the body and brain, based on the concept of understanding the world through the body and thinking of the world three-dimensionally. Future Park is an educational project based on the concept of collaborative creation, where visitors can enjoy creating the world freely with others.
Commemorating the launch of Nowhere, teamLab will transform the 3,000-square-meter space into an experiential, immersive art world, transporting visitors to the digital ‘forest’ to liberate the physical intellect, and to explore, discover, and understand new forms of perception through the body. The exhibition is scheduled to open in the next few years.
