Immersive art installations offer a momentous escape from reality. The essence of time, location and your sense of self are thrown out the window once you step inside a fully-transformed space. Perhaps, no one is better at creating these experiences than teamLab. The Japan-based collective is one of the leading purveyors of immersive experiences, and now, it has plans to open up a permanent flagship in Tokyo that will contain only digital artworks. On a smaller scale is street art duo OSGEMEOS’s upcoming solo exhibit in Hong Kong s Lehmann Maupin Gallery. The showcase will offer a multi-sensory experience that fuses graffiti with hip-hop alongside physical pieces such as sculptural boomboxes, paintings and other installations.

Check out our highlights of current and upcoming art shows below.

teamlab to Build a Massive Digital-Only Museum in Tokyo

teamLab is set to build a humongous digital-only museum in Tokyo, Japan called MORI Building DIGITAL ART MUSEUM: teamLab Borderless. The establishment provided by Mori Building will spotlight a slew of digital artworks alongside immersive experiences. Not to mention, the space itself will span a whopping 10,000 square meters of floor space. “The word ‘Borderless’ expresses the museum’s aim to tear down the borders between ‘one art and another,’ ‘art and visitors’ and ’oneself and others’ by allowing visitors to melt into the art and become part of it,” said the collective in a statement. The museum is expected to open sometime in Summer 2018. Visit teamLab’s official website to learn more.
