As we told you yesterday, Paramount Pictures is running unannounced pop-up screenings of Jason Reitman‘s new film Young Adult in cities around North America. As a special bonus, Jason and Paramount enlisted the curatorial services of Los Angeles’s famous pop culture art gallery Gallery1988 to pick the artists and produce limited edition pieces of art for the surprise screenings.
I’ve been told there will be more pop up screenings in the coming week or two, although I have no idea where or when. Each screening will have a unique piece of limited edition artwork produced by a different artist. If you’re in a major city I would keep my eyes open for a pop-up screening in your area. Be sure to check back to see more art when we get it!
The first screening took place in Toronto Canada and featured a poster by Lil Tuffy. The second screening took place tonight in Minneapolis, MN with a limited edition print from Aesthetic Apparatus. Check it out after the jump.
Often considered Minneapolis’ best totally unknown design super team, Aesthetic Apparatus was started by Dan Ibarra and Michael Byzewski as a fun side project from their “real” jobs, but has since turned into full time, full-fledged, insanely unstoppable, and occasionally award winning design mega-studio who’s past work clients include Harper Collins, Criterion Collection and Rolling Stone.
Keep checking back for more art from the Young Adult pop-up screenings.
