Cercle et Carré (Circle and Square).
A discussion and exhibition society for abstract artists formed in Paris in 1929 by the critic Michel Seuphor and the painter Joaquín Torres-García. They published a journal of the same name, of which three numbers appeared in 1929–30. The association held only one exhibition, at Galerie 23 in April 1930, but this has the distinction of being the first group exhibition ever devoted solely to abstract art; 46 artists showed work, including Mondrian and Vantongerloo but also such non-geometricians as Kandinsky and Schwitters.
