Asociación de Arte Constructivo (Association of Constructivist Art) was an art movement founded in Uruguay in 1935 by constructivist artist and writer Joaquín Torres-García, with the aim of creating a truly Latin American art
When he returned to his hometown of Montevideo in 1934, Torres-García sought to create a revolutionary movement inspired by his theory of universalism constructivo (universal constructivism). This was a revolutionary constructivist art that had its roots in pre-Colombian art while also embracing the utopian spirit and geometric forms of modern, urban South America.
The group dissolved in 1939 after the members found it impossible to maintain the ideals of the Asociación.
Other artists associated with the group include Rosa Acle, J. Álvarez Marqués, Carmelo de Arzadum, Alfredo Cáceres, María Cańizas, Luis Castellanos, Amalia Nieto, Héctor Ragni, Lia Rivas, Carmelo Rivello, Alberto Soriano, Augusto Torres, Horacio Torres and Nicolás Urta.
