KALEIDOSCOPE is pleased to announce a special initiative organized on the occasion of the upcoming 55th International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale, the world’s most prestigious event on the contemporary art calendar.

KALEIDOSCOPE Venice Bar, a pop-up "aperitivo" bar powered by Absolut Vodka, will run during the three days of preview of the Biennale (May 29-30-31, from 6–9 pm). An unmissable gathering spot in the few spare hours between the busy days and the sparkling nights, the bar will be house to music and performance events produced each evening in collaboration with a different art institution.

The visual identity and decor of the bar will be specially designed by cult Scottish artist Donald Urquhart, whose bittersweet drawings range from humorous to darkly melancholic and are executed in brush and ink with an elegant line. A contemporary of legendary Leigh Bowery, Urquhart was part of London's seminal nightclub and drag scene. His own nightclub, The Beautiful Bend, which he ran throughout the 1990s with DJ Harvey and Sheila Tequila, was one of the most creative and notorious that London has ever seen. 

Further details on the venue, partner institutions and program of events will be disclosed soon. For information, email to:
