Who was Arthur Russell?:
Arthur Russell was an American cellist, composer, producer, singer, and queer-identifying musician whose work spanned a disparate range of styles. He was trained in contemporary experimental composition and Indian classical music and found success in downtown New York's avant-garde and disco scenes in the 1970s and 1980s, during which time he was associated with minimalism and the experimental music venue The Kitchen. A prolific recording artist, Russell produced a considerable collection of material over the course of his career, including a number of successful underground dance hits under various aliases, but his near-chronic inability to complete projects resulted in a limited amount of released output. He sadly passed away in 1992 due to complications from AIDS.

What/Why?:
Arthur Russell has had a significant impact on numerous musicians and artists here in the Twin Cities and some of us have banded together to pay tribute to him and the body of work he left behind. This tribute has culminated into a night of art and music which we are hosting at the White Page Gallery. Following this event, we hope to release a compilation of music that consists of Arthur Russell covers performed by artists who are from and based in the Twin Cities. We hope you'll join us!

All the proceeds from the event and the compilation that is to be released will be donated to the Aliveness Project, A community center for people living with HIV/AIDS in the Twin Cities area. The mission of The Aliveness Project is to encourage self-empowerment and provide direct services for persons living with HIV/AIDS.
