teamLab Unveils Opening Exhibition for New Art Museum TANK Shanghai

23.February.2019 | BUSINESS / SPOT

teamLab has announced that it will showcase a new art installation titled Universe of Water Particles in the Tank for the opening of the new art museum TANK Shanghai in Shanghai from March 23 to August 24 this year.

The giant digital art piece sees a waterfall cascading down the tank which people can interact with by standing under. Like a rock in water, the presence of a person causes the flow of the water to change direction.


Other installations will include Flowers and People, Cannot be Controlled but Live Together – Transcending Boundaries, A Whole Year per Hour and Black Waves: Lost, Immersed and Reborn.

TANK Shanghai is a 60,000 square meter complex established by Qiao Zhibing, a collector of modern art from around the world. It is to be a new landmark of Shanghai representing its art and culture. The site is built from the oil storage tanks of Longhua Airport into which it has incorporates galleries, restaurant, bookstores, a park, and an education center. It is a place for people, society, modern artwork, the city and nature to come together as one.


Qiao Zhibing’s collection includes pieces from Theaster Gates, Thomas Houseago, Sterling Ruby, Michaël Borremans, Damien Hirst, Wilhelm Sasnal, Danh Vō, teamLab, Zhang Enli, Liu Wei, Xu Zhen, Qiu Xiaofei, Fu-dong Yang, and Zeng Fanzhi.


As well as teamLab, Argentinian sculptor Adrián Villar Rojas will also showcase his work Sometimes you wonder, in an interconnected universe, who is dreaming who?.


TANK Shanghai will showcase a group exhibition of 13 Chinese artists called “Under Construction” as part of the opening program. The exhibition’s themes are “partial, experimental, and imperfect” and will include works from Zhang Xiaogang, Xu Zhen, Zeng Fanzhi and more.
