Concrete art originated in 20th-century Europe, and was coined in this way in 1930, when artist Theo van Doesburg (1883 - 1931) published the Manifesto of Concrete Art in Paris. The author analyzes how the geometric abstract trend was experienced by some Argentine and Brazilian artists, theorists and critics from 1948 to 1961, with the focal point of the Museu de Arte Moderna do Rio de Janeiro. The research recovers the exhibitions, conferences and courses that took place at the Museum, examining a series of documents such as catalogs, folders, bulletins and photos. Through the study of the exchange of ideas between Argentine and Brazilian art production, the author rescues the importance of the Argentine presence in the Brazilian artistic context of the period.
