KALEIDOSCOPE Venice Bar was a pop-up bar curated by KALEIDOSCOPE and powered by ABSOLUT Vodka that ran during the three days of preview of the 55th Art Biennale in Venice, located in the courtyard of IUAV University at the convent of Tolentini church.

The initiative, whose visual identity and decor were specially designed by Scottish artist Donald Urquhart, featured a program of performances by artists Matteo Rubbi, Ramaya Tegegne and Patrick Staff, produced in collaboration with three art institutions—GAMeC Bergamo, CAC Genève and CCA Derry, respectively.

Urquhart collaborated with ASBOLUT Vodka’s mixologist to create ABSOLUT Donald!, a custom cocktail with a fresh minty vibe. Before and after the performances, each evening was enlivened by sets of exciting new sounds by three young Italian DJs: Palmwine (Simone Bertuzzi), Pigro on Sofa (Alberto Guerrini) and Giorgio Di Salvo.
