"Parental discretion advised": That's a warning we like to see on art exhibit announcements. At a new group show, "Maria: Politics. Sex. Death. Men." the theme is survival, and fighting for life doesn't lend itself to delicacy or family-friendliness, now does it? Instead, photographers, costumers, and installationists present visions of young gay Latino life. Assimilation, love, magical realism, and psychedelic sensibilities play out on the walls; the only thing curator Leonardo Herrera might have added, big-idea-wise, is family; does anything else even exist? Besides art?
