2019-11-25


Art collective teamLab’s monumental museum teamLab Borderless Shanghai opened in Huangpu District, Shanghai on November 5, 2019. teamLab Borderless Shanghai features approximately 50 teamLab artworks, including new, never-before-seen works in a massive, complex, three-dimensional space. Advance tickets are now available online.


teamLab Borderless is a museum without a map, a world made of artworks without boundaries created by art collective teamLab.


Artworks move out of rooms, communicate with other works, influence, and sometimes intermingle with each other with no boundaries. teamLab Borderless is one continuous, borderless world made of a group of such artworks. Visitors will immerse their bodies in borderless art in this vast, complex world. They wander, explore with intention, discover, and create a new world with others.


With the creation of teamLab Borderless Shanghai , the teamLab Borderless artworks can now transcend even the physical space of a museum’s location, traveling between teamLab Borderless museums around the world, expanding and connecting the time and space of teamLab Borderless.


One year since its opening in June, 2018, the teamLab Borderless museum in Odaiba, Tokyo has seen 2.3 million visitors from over 160 different countries and regions. This has surpassed even the number of attendees in 2018 at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, Netherlands (2,161,160 visitors), making teamLab Borderless the world’s most-visited museum dedicated to works by a single artist.


teamLab Borderless Shanghai features several monumental artworks, including a Forest of Lamps that will be 1.5 times the size of the one in Tokyo; the large-scale Light Community , a group of countless moving vehicles that has undergone repeated experimentation before finally debuting in its completed form in Shanghai; as well as an enormous work consisting of approximately 980 moving lights. These and other massive, never-before-seen artworks are unveiled at teamLab Borderless Shanghai . In addition, the museum’s intricate, dense, three-dimensional space will enhance the artworks without boundaries, allowing the concept of teamLab Borderless to expand even further.



The Four Worlds that Make Up teamLab Borderless Shanghai


1: Borderless World


People understand and recognize the world through their bodies, moving freely and forming connections and relationships with others. As a consequence, the body has its own sense of time. In the mind, the boundaries between different thoughts are ambiguous, causing them to influence and sometimes intermingle with each other.


teamLab Borderless is a group of artworks that form one continuous, borderless world. Artworks move out of the rooms freely, form connections and relationships with people, communicate with other works, influence and sometimes intermingle with each other, and have the same concept of time as the human body. Artworks even transcend the physical space of the museum’s location, moving between other teamLab Borderless museums around the world, expanding and connecting the time and space of teamLab Borderless.


People wander through the world, exploring with intention, creating and discovering a new world with others.


The borderless world transforms according to our presence, and as we immerse and meld ourselves into this unified world, we explore a continuity among people, as well as a new relationship that transcends the boundaries between people and the world.
