Creating a Space to Appreciate Geometric Abstract Art

Espace de l'Art Concret

Espace de l'Art Concret was established in 1990 to display works of art that focus on geometric abstraction. The core of the collection was formed in 2000 as a result of the Albers-Honegger donation — a multi-stage gift to the French state by Sybil Albers and Gottfried Honegger — and was recognized as a national treasure. Today, Espace de l'Art Concret is home to more than 700 works, an expansive collection built around the leaders of the Swiss and French concrete art movements.

Since its creation, Espace de l'Art Concret has remained responsive to innovations in the field of geometric abstract art and continues to open the collection to younger generations and less traditional practices. In addition to hosting world-class exhibitions, Espace de l'Art Concret offers artist in residency placements for artists, dancers, and writers. Through this work, the organization promotes exchanges and dialogues between today's creators and the storied history of concrete art.
