Edgardo Giménez

Edgardo Giménez (b. 1942, Santa Fe, Argentina) is an emblematic Argentine artist. Edgardo Giménez's career began in the 1960s as part of the avant-garde scene in Buenos Aires that emerged around the Instituto Di Tella. Over the years, his production has unfolded in paintings, sculptures, performances, scenographic works and architectural projects. Giménez has created iconic houses, such as the "Casa Azul" [Blue House], commissioned in 1971 by art critic Jorge Romero Brest and Marta Bontempi, built in City Bell, Buenos Aires. His works are in numerous museums and foundations in Argentina, the United States, Chile, Poland, and in important private collections.
