Turn Me Tee (Part 1)
This tee concept was designed by Kanien'kehá:ka curator and educator Ryan Rice, whose practice advances contemporary Onkwehonwe visual culture.
"This design 'Boy, you turn me' exposes the complications fixed to a word and its evolution in local and global connotations. Flipped upside down, it demands attention, a second look, and invites curiosity and recognition, criticism and debate. When the wearer of the tee looks down, they read it properly to experience and acknowledge the agency 'Indigenous' offers as an aesthetic that carries pride and respect."
"Upside down. Boy, you turn me. Inside out."
- Diana Ross
