Corridart collection

  • P0119
  • Collection
  • 1976-1981

The collection consists of materials assembled by the plaintiffs' lawyers and deposited with the Quebec Superior Court in connection with the Corridart case. The collection documents the conception and execution of Corridart, as well as its abrupt dismantling and the legal proceedings that followed. There are materials related to the careers of the artists who participated in the court case, and information about related legal precedents.

The collection includes an inventory by Melvin Charney of the sites along Sherbrooke Street, explaining the conception of Corridart as a rue-musée qu'on visite à pied. There is also a comprehensive set of photographs of Corridart, documenting the common elements (the continuous assemblage), as well as the works exhibited along Sherbrooke Street, the panels of text, and the sites of activities. These photographs trace the entire Corridart route from east to west. There are photographs documenting the dismantling. Others show impounded works and several illustrate damage to works. The collection includes project proposals, planning documents, contracts between artists and COJO, correspondence, articles from legal journals, reports of meetings, blueprints, and sketches. There are also artists' curricula vitae, photographs, brochures, and other documents related to the artists' careers that were assembled to establish their status as professional artists.

The collection is arranged into the following two series:

P0119/1 Textual and related documents
P0119/2 Photographs of Corridart installations

Joseph F. Bernard collection

  • P0008
  • Collection
  • 1921 - 1984

The collection held by Concordia Records Management and Archives provides information on an important collection of ethnographical and archeological objects, mainly from the Cooper Inuits of Coronation Gulf, that Captain Joseph F. Bernard had gathered between 1916 and 1920. The assemblage was known as the Bernard Arctic Collection, but also as Bernard Eskimo Collection, Bernard Collection, or Bernard Inuit Collection. In 1921, Captain Bernard loaned his collection to Loyola College. He donated it in 1924 for a proposed College museum. The museum never materialized, and in 1947 Loyola College donated part of the collection to the Arctic Institute of North America in Montreal (the Institute moved to Calgary in 1976) and part to Cambridge University’s Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. Other parts of the Bernard Arctic Collection were donated in 1991 to the Canadian Museum of Civilization (now the Canadian Museum of History) and in 1993 to Loyola High School.
The material includes a photograph of Captain Joseph Bernard and photocopies of the following documents:

The Loyola College file on the Bernard Arctic Collection, 1921–1947 (12 documents totalling 15 pp.),
Joseph F. Bernard’s correspondence to Father Edward Devine, S. J. and Father William H. Hingston, S. J, 1924–1959 (15 documents totalling 32 pp.),
