    A personal encounter with the artists and artistic movements that have defined the development of abstraction since the 1940s in Québec and across Canada: that’s what is in store for visitors to the exhibition A Matter of Abstraction, on view at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal starting April 12, 2012. Following a chronological and thematic approach, the exhibition showcases key works from the museum’s Permanent Collection, which today form a priceless public heritage. The presentation of A Matter of Abstraction was made possible by a substantial grant from Québec’s Ministère de la Culture, des Communications et de la Condition féminine under its program of support for permanent exhibitions.
