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, Reitman and Paramount enlisted the curatorial services of Los Angeles’ famous pop culture art gallery Gallery1988 to pick the artists and produce limited edition pieces of art for the surprise screenings.
There have been pop-up screenings in Toronto, Minneapolis, and Chicago, each with an accompanying poster. Tonight’s screening is in Austin (at the Alamo Drafthouse, naturally), and as at the other previous screenings attendees get a unique piece of limited edition artwork. For the Austin show, Tara McPherson was hired to design the poster. Check it out in full after the break.
Named the crown princess of poster art by ELLE Magazine, Tara McPherson is a New York native, who exhibits her paintings and serigraphs in fine art galleries around the world. She has been featured in dozens of publications including Esquire, Vanity Fair, Elle, Marie Claire and the LA Times and worked with companies like Kid Robot and the TV show LOST.
