Pace Art + Technology has commissioned teamLab, the Japanese art collective known for expanding the practice of digital art, to create an immersive digital installation, the collective's first installation in the U.S. Described as a “digital playground for all ages,” teamLab’s exhibit in Menlo Park, California called Living Digital Space and Future Parks, encourages participants to partake and explore the concepts of these deeply interactive works. teamLab has held exhibitions in Hirakata Park (Japan), Martin Browne Contemporary, Maison & Object and many other established gallery spaces. This exhibition, at 300 El Camino Real Menlo Park, CA, will be opened until July 1st.
According to Pace Gallery's Marc Glimcher, “The teamLab exhibition is a momentous one for Pace’s newly formed Art + Technology program: The content and ambitious scale of the show, and teamLab’s practice is emblematic of Pace’s longstanding commitment to experimentation and the growing nexus between art and technology. We are thrilled to showcase the collective’s expansive body of work as the program’s opener and spark a deeper conversation across all age groups.
The new program is dedicated to "collaboration with interdiciplinary art groups, collectives and studios whose works explore the confluence of art and technology." From the early works of James Turrell and Robert Whitman, Pace Gallery has a long history of supporting innovative artists.
teamLab’s exhibitions foresee how technology is involved in our daily lives by creating a virtual playground for all. Instead of physically changing the space, digital technology creates new relationships between people and makes it possible to expand artworks with their use of “projection mapping” and the development of “space adaptability.” The artwork is constantly developing with the viewer and never repeating itself.
