UAE’s newest cultural destination is about immersive art, wave of light
A 17,000sqm cultural destination offering community members a unique experience to inspire and ignite curiosity, imagination and creativity will be the latest offering at Saadiyat Island in Abu Dhabi.
Sheikh Theyab bin Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Chairman of Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Court, launched the teamLab Phenomena Abu Dhabi project, which will be an immersive, multi-sensory experience at the intersection of art and technology. Coming up near Louvre Abu Dhabi and Guggenheim Abu Dhabi, the neighbourhood also includes the Zayed National Museum and the Natural History Museum Abu Dhabi.
The Department of Culture and Tourism, Abu Dhabi, Miral and teamLab (an interdisciplinary Tokyo-based art collective known for their unique artistic vision) will develop the architecture and facilities. Construction of the project is expected to be completed in 2024. However, for over the next three weeks till July 17, community members can enjoy a preview activation at Mamsha Al Saadiyat.
The immersive artworks embody the concept of ‘infinite curiosity’ and serves as a teaser for the wonderful sensory exploration that awaits visitors in 2024.
The iconic destination will feature original and constantly changing art and technology that is unique to Abu Dhabi and will inspire the next generation of creators and innovators. The installations will be housed within an architectural masterpiece that is designed to flow around the artworks.
