The event creator says
Southern: The word elicits a myriad of ideas when associated with the United States of America. For one to identify as a Southerner connotes imagery rooted in nostalgia and violence. It’s ironic that the historical site of so much unchasteness and lack of restraint should be referred to as the Bible Belt. Both the Bible and chastity belts belie many good things to play with.

This exhibition aims to tackle the things about southern culture/politics/ history/ socialization and identity that are fetishized in society-at-large and/or popular culture. There is a persistent notion that if you were born below the Mason Dixon line, you are overtly religious (read: Baptist), all of your tea is sweet, your political leanings conservative, and all of your sex is heteronormative. The truth, however, is much more fluid, and complex. The truth is dirty.
