TURF is a site-specific curatorial project from New York City. It challenges the arbitrary notion of Africana in the digital age. The constant flow of people, goods and artistic practice across porous borders has broadened human identity. TURF challenges some of the myths about our sense of belonging. Using a range of emerging artistic ideas and media, TURF encourages a more candid visual dialogue on the ebbs and flows of Africana today.
