Came across a post today on Art Forum Diary about the premiere the new Arthur Russell documentary, Wild Combination. The filmmaker looked kind of familiar then I remembered that it was former Creative Time video fellow, Matt Wolf. Cool. There are a couple other Creative Time connections to Russell as well. 2001 Art in the Anchorage musician/composer Phil Niblock made the incredible 1986 film, Terrace Of Unintelligibility, which featured Russell. And a quick search of the Creative Time archives revealed that Arthur Russell himself participated Art in the Anchorage 8 in 1991.
