[Several new areas introduced during the pandemic]

Despite the impact of the coronavirus pandemic in 2020, various new areas have opened at the museum as featured on notable media such as CNN during the pandemic, including two large-scale artworks in the Garden Area, and an adjoining vegan ramen restaurant originating from Kyoto.

[Increase in foreign visitors due to the lifting of the ban on individual travel to Japan and the expansion of new areas]

On October 11, 2022, the Japanese government significantly eased the COVID-19 border measures. The ban on individual travel to Japan has been lifted, visa exemptions have returned and the daily limit on the number of people entering Japan has been removed. In response, tourism to Japan has resumed properly for the first time in about two and a half years.

Around a month since the lifting of the ban on individual travel to Japan on October 11, tickets purchased by visitors from overseas increased by 136% compared to the same month in 2019 (before COVID-19), with one in three visitors coming from overseas. (*1)
More than half of the visitors from overseas purchased their tickets before visiting Japan, and a trend has been seen in which the museum is one of the purposes for people to visit Tokyo. (*2)
In the visitor questionnaire, there have been positive comments from visitors from overseas, such as "I've been wanting to go to the museum since the renewal."

[High praise from travel magazines]

In recent years the museum has been featured in notable publications such as Lonely Planet, a world-famous travel guidebook, which introduced it as one of “The 7 best museums in Tokyo that even Tokyoites line up for”, as well as in “The 26 Best Things to Do in Tokyo” by Condé Nast Traveler.

We look forward to welcoming visitors that are sightseeing in Tokyo to experience the museum, which has evolved through new artwork spaces.

The museum will continue to provide people from around the world an experience based on the concept of teamLab Planets, “Immerse your Body, and with Others, Become One with the World”.

Garden Area

The Garden Area was unveiled in July 2021 featuring two large-scale artworks, including a garden with over 13,000 live orchids and a surreal art space with ovoids scattered across a floor covered in real moss. These new art spaces can only be experienced here, and explore people’s relationship with nature and the world through digital technology. By incorporating natural light in space, the works reveal different aspects during the day and after sunset.

Public art that can be experienced by all

Universe of Fire Particles Falling from the Sky is a work of public art that depicts flames, on display since April 2021. Flames, which are a phenomenon of light and heat generated by combustion, are expressed as a collection of lines drawn in relation to the flow of combusting gas. The work is displayed outdoors and can be viewed by anyone, regardless of whether or not they enter the museum.

[ teamLab Planets TOKYO DMM ]

teamLab Planets is a museum where you walk through water, and a garden where you become one with the flowers. There are four massive exhibition spaces and two gardens.

By immersing your entire body with other people in these massive artworks, the boundary between the body and the artwork dissolves. The self, others, and the world become continuous, and we explore a new relationship without boundaries between ourselves and the world.

Enter barefoot, immerse your body with others in the artwork spaces, and become one with the world.

[teamLab]

teamLab (f. 2001) is an international art collective. Their collaborative practice seeks to navigate the confluence of art, science, technology, and the natural world. Through art, the interdisciplinary group of specialists, including artists, programmers, engineers, CG animators, mathematicians, and architects, aims to explore the relationship between the self and the world, and new forms of perception.

In order to understand the world around them, people separate it into independent entities with perceived boundaries between them. teamLab seeks to transcend these boundaries in our perceptions of the world, of the relationship between the self and the world, and of the continuity of time. Everything exists in a long, fragile yet miraculous, borderless continuity.

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 Shanghai, and teamLab SuperNature Macao, with more to open in cities including Abu Dhabi, Beijing, Hamburg, Jeddah, and 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.

Regulatory News: Ipsen (Euronext: IPN; ADR: IPSEY) announced today that the CONTACT-01 study did not meet its primary endpoint of overall survival (OS) at the final analysis.
