Edgardo Giménez has designed posters advertising the visual arts, theaters, and dance companies throughout his entire career. This composition, from 1994, promotes director Alejandro Ullua's musical adaptation of Sixtina, an essay by Marguerite Yourcenar, at the Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires. Unlike his earlier, more interpretive works, this example demonstrates how Giménez uses photography more conventionally, likely sourcing images of the show's live performers.
