Kaleidoscope is the first European free magazine of contemporary art and culture, a bimonthly publication with a circulation of more than 70,000 copies distributed across an international network of 25 countries at a total of 500 points of distribution, to an audience of up to 300,000 readers.

Kaleidoscope boldly intends to create a platform for information that will satisfy the demands of the contemporary art enthusiast—an attentive and demanding reader with a discerning eye on the art scene who requires, above all, that a magazine be a faithful guide, capable of orienting his or her appreciation toward new avenues and discoveries. Kaleidoscope is also committed to fostering genuine engagement and research, whether in the form of images or cultural criticism. Prestigious writers, challenging exchanges between artists and curators, and the magazine’s authoritative voice will all contribute to shaping contemporary discourse. While Kaleidoscope’s focus is on contemporary art, the magazine also presents incursions into related fields, such as architecture, design and fashion.

Alongside the publication of the magazine, Kaleidoscope’s initiatives include:
- a project space for exhibitions, located in our headquarters in Milan and animated by a rigorous and highly selective program. The space also features an extensive stock of international art, architecture, design and fashion magazines available to browse or buy. Upcoming exhibition: Salvatore Arancio, opening on September 18.

- an editorial production of catalogs and monographs, academic texts, artists’ books and editions. From time to time, our publications will assume different formats and strategies of distribution. Our aim is to explore all the opportunities offered by printed matter and publications in general for a variety of customers who seek a stimulating and dependable partner.

- an art agency at the disposal of both institutions and private organizations in need of a highly professional consulting staff, skilled at developing all the stages of a project, from production to communication strategies.
