Wild Combination: A Portrait of Arthur Russel

Tue 19 April 2022 // 20:00

Tickets: £5

Arthur Russell's influence on the cultural milieu is everywhere, but in life he was largely unknown.

30 years on from his passing, come to the Cube to celebrate his life and music, with the documentary 'Wild Combination' made about Russell and DJ sets in the bar.

About the film:
Wild Combination is director Matt Wolf’s visually absorbing portrait of the seminal avant-garde composer, singer-songwriter, cellist, and disco producer Arthur Russell. Before his untimely death from AIDS in 1992, Arthur prolifically created music that spanned both pop and the transcendent possibilities of abstract art. Now, over fifteen years since his passing, Arthur's work is finally finding its audience. Wolf incorporates rare archival footage and commentary from Arthur's family, friends, and closest collaborators—including Philip Glass and Allen Ginsberg—to tell this poignant and important story.
