The Posters, a new e-commerce company based in LA, will launch on December 5th with a celebratory pig roast at The Standard Spa.
Co-founded by Adrian Rosenfeld and Athena Currey, The Posters collaborate with a roster of emerging & established artists to create custom “posters”, available for a short time through ThePosters.co for $55. The Posters doesn’t present limited editions or advocate arbitrary scarcity – once a print is no longer available on the site, it will be gone for good.
With each poster sold, the company will donate a portion of the proceeds to arts education groups funding art classes for underserved youth in American cities. The first six lithographs will debut during Art Basel, featuring unique work by Nate Lowman, Paul Wackers, Sadie Laska, Wyatt Kahn and others.
The Standard Spa organizes, during Art Basel Miami Beach, various initiatives like cocktails, book launch, dinner.
