In January 2015, to celebrate the launch of the Asia edition, KALEIDOSCOPE opened a pop-up project space at Gillman Barracks, the contemporary arts cluster of Singapore, thanks to a partnership with the Singapore Economic Development Board. Coinciding with the contemporary art fair Art Stage, the pop-up gallery hosted a two-person exhibition featuring Japanese living legend Keiichi Tanaami and young Chinese artist Chen Tianzhuo.

Chen Tianzhuo (Chinese, b. 1985) is an artist who lives and works in Beijing. He is represented by Long March Space, Beijing.
