Turf is Croydon’s homegrown art space.

We put on exhibitions & workshops, provide artists with opportunities, space & resources & host collectives.

“This vision of an accessible, locally grounded art scene is very different from the elitist flying circus of blockbuster exhibitions, auctions, fairs and biennials in destination cities that has dominated the art world in recent years.” – The New York Times
