Opening Reception for Invasive Queer Kudzu: Richmond, a participatory project and exhibition by artist and organizer Aaron McIntosh. In this ongoing project, McIntosh and participants create quilted queer kudzu vines of fabric and wire. Each leaf is adorned with stories of LGBTQ+ contributors and archive documents that celebrate and illuminate Southern queer culture. Using the invasive kudzu vine as an agile metaphor, the project disrupts dominant Southern conservatism and activates the often perceived as monstrous vine as a symbol for Southern queer tenacity.
