The Ten Cubed team is inspired by the notion of challenging traditional approaches to buying art, and driven by the desire to share a growing collection with the public. We think art should be shown, not stored.
The Ten Cubed team is excited to share an evolving study of contemporary artists in the first of their ten-year collecting and exhibition projects.
Dianne has been a collector of art for many years; motivated by her sister-in-law Ada’s vision, she was inspired to start the Ten Cubed project. Her involvement in philanthropy and community work shaped her belief that art should be supported and shared with the public.
Curator to the Collection
Ada has been a driving force behind the Ten Cubed concept. She has drawn on her many years of viewing and collecting contemporary art. In addition Ada has served on a number of art boards in both the private and public arena.
