Name of creator
Bob McKenna is a Quebec artist and filmmaker working in visual and media arts.
Together with his brother Kevin, Bob McKenna participated in the exhibition "Corridart dans la rue Sherbrooke" that was sponsored by the Arts and Culture Committee of the 1976 international Olympic Games held in Montreal. The exhibition was dismantled by the City of Montreal before the Olympic Games opened. Several of the artists involved in the exhibition initiated legal proceedings against the city, these later known as the Corridart affair. Twenty-five years later, in 2001, Bob McKenna produced a documentary about the Corridart affair, entitled "About the Corridart Affair".
The fonds was transferred from Concordia University's Records Management and Archives Department to Concordia University Libraries' Special Collections April 6, 2016, May 3, 2016, and May 5, 2016.
