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, Chicago, Austin, and San Francisco, each with an accompanying poster. Tonight’s screening is in Los Angeles at the New Beverly Cinema, and once again attendees get a unique piece of limited edition artwork. For the Hollywood show, Matt Owen designed the poster. Check it out in full after the break.
Arkansas native Matt Owen, dubbed frequently as BrickHut, is best known for seeing his minimalist work reblogged or retweeted on the web, but he recently debuted, and almost sold out, his screenprints at Gallery1988’s annual Crazy 4 Cult art show.
