History

Kevin McKenna was born in Sherbrooke, Quebec, in 1952. He graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Pratt Institute in New York in 1974.
Bob McKenna is an artist and filmmaker working in visual and media arts.
Together, the McKenna brothers 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. They created the large-scale photomontage Rues-miroirs, encompassing a panoramic view of five or six blocks of Sherbrooke Street and St-Laurent Street, where it was installed. The exhibition, and with it McKenna’s installation, was dismantled by the City of Montreal before the Olympic Games opened.
