The Museum of Geometric and MADI Art in Dallas is the only museum in the U.S. dedicated to geometric art and the MADI movement. MADI, a non-representational abstract movement formed in the Argentina in the late 1940s, is usually understood to stand for Movement, Abstraction, Dimension, Invention (and also a reference to the Republican forces in the Spanish Civil holding Madrid). The works are characterized by jagged shapes and flat, defined colors.
