Blind Tracks proudly announces the participation in the Basler Museums night on January 22nd 2016.
The museum of cultures Basel exclusively asked Blind Tracks to perform three live shows within the scope of the museum night Basel. The created paintings will be exhibited and for everyone to see in the museum during the following week.
Since the very beginning of Christian Martinez’s journey into the world of art, it has always been a dream of his to bring the art of b-boying into a museum and give it the long deserved appreciation and valuation.
For more details: Museumsnacht.
World premiere: The current art project “The History of B-Boying” of Christian “La Furia” Martinez pushes the limits of his self-created art form Blind Tracks. In his latest work, the former swiss breakdance champion concentrates on the history of B-Boying and integrates it into his paintings.
The paintings of “La Furia” are combined with a few live performances and a talk. The legendary B-Boy Crazy Legs of the Rock Steady Crew from New York is going to speak about the development of B-Boying as well as showing some of his skills. „Crazy Legs“ grew up in Manhattan, New York City, where he was introduced to Breakdance by his older brother when he was nine. He was an original member of the Rock Steady Crew after its foundation in 1979. “La Furia” and J.J.Flueck (Drummer) will have theirs show too.
During the exhibition a painting made by Christian Martinez will be auctioned. The revenue will be donated to the Regio Basiliensis foundation.
