American artists David McDermott (born 1952) and Peter McGough (born 1958) both studied at Syracuse University, New York. They have been collaborating since 1980. Employing historical photographic processes including cyanotype, gum bichromate and palladium, their practice considers popular art and culture, concepts of time, religion, fashion, medicine and sexual behaviour. McDermott and McGough have exhibited extensively at venues including the Frankfurt Art Association and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. A retrospective of their photographic work was held at IMMA in 2008.
To ensure the health and safety of the public, IMMA’s galleries will be closed from the evening of Friday 18 September until Saturday 10 October 2020. The grounds of IMMA and the RHK will remain open. Thank you for your cooperation.
