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. Therefore, 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. Ever since it was formed in 2013, TURF has shown works by Nathalie Mba-Bikoro, Elena Cecchinato and Leah Gordon, namely during Armory Arts Week and Frieze New York. In July 2014, Artsy also featured TURF as a notable emerging curatorial project from New York City, courtesy of cutlog NY.
