Argentine group of artists formed in 1952 and active until
1954. It was founded on the initiative of the art critic Aldo
Pellegrini (1903–75) as a union of Constructivist painters
belonging to the ASOCIACIÓN ARTE CONCRETO INVENCIÓN—Tomás
Maldonado, Alfredo Hlito, Lidy Prati (b 1921), Ennio
Iommi and Claudio Girola (b 1923)—and four independent
semi-abstract artists: José Antonio Fernández Muro, Sarah
Grilo, Miguel Ocampo and Hans Aebi (b 1923).
Pellegrini’s main concern was with the quality of the artists’
work rather than with a shared programme. They were the first
abstract artists in Argentina to exhibit together as a group
abroad: in 1953 they showed both at the Museu de Arte Moderna
in Rio de Janeiro and at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam.
