On the occasion of the preview days of the 2019 Venice Biennale, Spazio Maiocchi – Milan’s cultural center co-founded by Carhartt WIP and Slam Jam – reaffirms its commitment to thesupport of contemporary art and culture, by presenting a special three-day pop-up club curated by KALEIDOSCOPE, and powered by The Vinyl Factory. Held in a secret location in the heart of the Laguna, the members-only hangout will feature a programof artists’ contributions and relatedlive performances, while also celebrating the drop of KALEIDOSCOPE’s newest issue.
The Venice event is the kickoff of THE SONIC EYE, a cultural initiative dedicated to experimental practices at the intersection of contemporary art and sound that will inform theprogram of Spazio Maiocchi for the next season(FW 2019 / SS 2020) through a series of performances, solo exhibitions, and artist residencies. Spotlighting the increasing overlap and interplay between these liminal fields across the work of a new generation of artists, the projectopens up a hybrid space for intermedia experimentation.
In the framework of the Venice Biennale, the pop-up club will bring together artists who belong to a new intermedia avant-garde, seamlessly merging visual arts and sound.Exclusive visuals and artist cameoswill accompany live performances by Warp-affiliatesAaron David Ross(American, b. 1985), Lorenzo Senni(Italian, b. 1983) and Evian Christ(British, b. 1989), while access to the club will be granted only to holders of a special card exclusivelydesigned by Estonian artist Katja Novistskova.
