In addition to designing posters dedicated to his exhibitions, Edgardo Giménez also designed posters for fellow contemporary artists and art events. This example is part of a series of promotional posters devoted to a commercial art space in Buenos Aires, created by Marta and Jorge Romero Brest, with support from Edgardo Giménez, titled Fuera de caja – Centro de Arte para Consumir (Out of the box – Center of Art to be Consumed). Here, Giménez starts to play with the images of animals, planets, and other recognizable figures found across 1960s propaganda.
