This third instalment in the series of exhibitions titled On Abstraction reveals close ties to A Matter of Abstraction—on display in the two adjacent galleries—which features Québec works in the Collection that shed light on the quest pursued by the artists of the Montréal School from the early 1940s on, in a thoroughly original way yet in synchrony with the major international movements.

At the Same Time, Elsewhere … offers a free-flowing presentation of thirty or so paintings and sculptures produced by leading figures who have contributed to the development of abstraction in Europe, the United States and Canada since the Second World War. 

These truly remarkable works in the Musée Collection were produced by European artists Pierre Alechinsky, Jean Dewasne, Max Ernst, Luis Feito, Ludger Gerdes, Hans Hartung, Berto Lardera,  Fernand Léger, Henri Michaux, Manfred Mohr, John Piper, Serge Poliakoff, Nicolas Schöffer, Pierre Soulages, Antoni Tàpies and Carel Visser; American artists Josef Albers, Lee Bontecou, Adolph Gottlieb, Hans Hofmann, Jules Olitski and Larry Poons; and Canadian artists Robert Adrian X, David Bolduc, Jack Bush, David Craven, Ron Martin,  David Rabinowitch, Royden Rabinowitch and William Ronald.
