Journey to the Blue City
A photography exhibition by artist Kashmirwala with a focus on ‘brotherhood’, including workshops and calisthenics classes. Kashmirwala‘s project, Journey to the Blue City, began in 2014 during a journey to Morocco’s ‘blue city’ of Chefchaouen, where he witnessed freestyle athletics on the streets of Casablanca. By locating the project within such teenage subcultures, Kashmirwala takes a deeper look at how non-profit movements are being built to support disadvantaged communities.
Until 23 August 2019, The Muse, 269 Portobello Road, London, W11 1LR. www.a-n.co.uk/events/kashmirwala-journey-to-the-blue-city
