Abstraction-Création
Association of abstract artists set up in Paris in 1931 with aim of promoting abstract art through group exhibitions. Rapidly acquired membership of around 400. Leaders were Herbin and Vantongerloo, but every major abstract painter took part including such figures as Gabo, Kandinsky and Mondrian. In Britain members of the modernist groupings the Seven and Five Society and Unit One, kept in close touch with Abstraction-Création. Their chief members were Hepworth, Moore, Nicholson, Nash and Piper. Abstraction-Création embraced the whole field of abstract art, but tended towards the more austere forms represented by Concrete art, Constructivism and Neo-Plasticism. Regular exhibitions were held until 1936 and five annual publications were issued. bron: http://www.tate.org.uk/collections/glossary/definition.jsp?entryId=10 (24-03-2010)
