McDermott & McGough have had, on the New York scene, a stature comparable to (if in a somewhat lower key than) Gilbert & George in London, and Pierre & Gilles in Paris—though M&M's work has always been more jollifying than G&G's or P&G's. This is the catalog of their show at the Cheim & Read Gallery, running from 12 January to 11 February 2006.

(M&M. G&G. P&G. C&R—not to be confounded with C&M. The gay art world may run out of ampersands soon. Click & go while you still can. Over & out.).
