American Abstract Artists is a democratic, artist-run organization formed in 1936 to promote and foster public understanding of abstract art. Since its inception the organization has played a pivotal role in the evolution of abstraction in America. American Abstract Artists exhibitions, publications, and lectures established the organization as a major forum for the exchange and discussion of ideas, and for presenting abstract and non-objective art to a broader public at a time when few other possibilities existed.

To date American Abstract Artists has organized over 75 exhibitions of its membership in museums and galleries across the United States. American Abstract Artists has published 12 Journals, in addition to brochures, books, catalogs, and has hosted critical panels and symposia. AAA distributes its published materials internationally to cultural organizations. American Abstract Artists has produced print portfolios by its membership. AAA print portfolios are in the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, Museum of Modern Art, Tate in London, and the Smithsonian Institution Archives of American Art.
