In Paris at the end of the 1920s, more than eighty artists from the Americas, Europe, and Russia formed one of the earliest groups on the continent dedicated to abstract art. The group, which included prominent abstractionists Sonia Delaunay and Wassily Kandinsky, published a journal and mounted a seminal exhibition in 1930, before disbanding shortly thereafter. Cercle et Carré and the International Spirit of Abstract Art tells the story of the group. Pairing rarely seen drawings, paintings, and prints from the exhibition with earlier and later works, Cercle et Carré (Circle and Square) illuminates the international legacy of abstract art.

Organized by the Georgia Museum of Art, University of Georgia. This program is supported in part by the Georgia Council for the Arts through the appropriations of the Georgia General Assembly. The Council is a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts.

Generous support for this exhibition provided by the Daura Foundation. Additional support provided by Texas Commission on the Arts, El Paso Museum of Art Foundation, and El Paso Museums and Cultural Affairs Department.
