Kashmirwala’s Journey to the Blue City is a story of brotherhood, both in a personal and in a wider sense. The photographs in the exhibition are taken from a book documenting the artist’s pilgrimage.
 
What started as a chance encounter in 2014 developed into an ongoing project documenting teenage sub cultures, as well as the beginning of an international non-profit movement in support of disadvantaged communities.
 
A visit to Morocco’s ‘blue city’ of Chefchaouen introduced Kashmirwala to freestyle athletics in the streets of Casablanca. He returned to capture the spirit of calisthenics and to support the disenfranchised teenagers living alongside the country’s tourist attractions.
 
The show is part of an extensive programme of artist’s talks and workshops at the Muse – supplemented by introductory calisthenics sessions at the gallery, and across several London locations. Completing the circle are free classes held in Morocco. Proceeds from book sales will be used to further expand the programme.
