Goodbye Letter from Dianne, Founder of Ten Cubed
As 2020 draws to a close, it is with mixed feelings I realise our Ten Cubed project has come to an end. It has been exciting and enjoyable culminating in the publishing of the book 2010-2020 Ten Cubed: Gallery, Concept, Collection.
Today I write a final goodbye to all of you as I announce the completion of our Ten Cubed project and the permanent closure of our gallery. To Christa & Maria, goodbye and good luck. We have had an excellent working partnership for many years. Both of you have worked tirelessly to finalise the conclusion of our ten years. I must also thank Emma, our longest standing gallery manager and all other previous staff who were integral on our Ten Cubed journey. Thank you.
To all of our visitors and friends, who attended our gallery openings, artist talks, morning teas, children’s mornings and educational sessions. I thank you. It’s hard to believe when we opened ten years ago we had no mailing list, no followers and little to no experience in running a gallery. We were on a steep learning curve. And we want to thank you all for coming on this journey with us.
To all of our artists. Our mantra was, don’t fall in love with the artists, but fall in love with their work. But in the end, we fell in love with both. To our galleries for providing us with such thought-provoking and dynamic art to admire and buy. Thank you.
To all our schools and universities who brought students into our gallery for education sessions. Thanks to Melissa from MUMA for bringing greater and greater numbers of student groups every year. It was a pleasure and a delight to educate the next generation of art lovers. And of course a thank you to all those who visited the exhibitions and numerous events at the gallery. We hope you have gained pleasure in viewing the diverse, interesting and challenging works of our artists.
The production of our book completes our ten year plan. I appreciate the assistance we had in this project. Thanks to Romy and Georgie at Real Film and Publishing for editing and publishing and to Robyn who tirelessly interviewed everyone and so provided us with the raw copy for the book.
Many more people deserve recognition and thanks for their role and contribution over the ten years and we have sought to do so in contents of the book. The book 2010-2020 Ten Cubed: Gallery, Concept, Collection. is distributed by Art Ink: https://artink.com.au/tencubed
Finally, Ada, my sister in law. Thank you for being a true friend and a visionary on this journey. It has been so rewarding by every measure, we have outdone our highest expectations.

Ten Cubed Current Exhibition – Departure
Our current exhibition, Departure looks at the starting point of many journeys taken by the artists in exploring and expressing their identity in relation to society.
Touching upon concepts of anomie, alienation, standardization, identity and self-analysis, this exhibition offers a discussion on how our body physically and psychologically relates to these issues in post-modern society and how they are reflected in the arts.
‘Departure’ features works from artists Alasdair McLuckie, Clare Milledge, Cyrus Tang, David Rosetzky, Michael Cook and Pat Brassington.

To celebrate ten fabulous years of collecting, Ten Cubed presents The Symphony of Collection, a series of five exhibitions that brings together artworks in the Ten Cubed Collection. Viewing the act of collecting as an accumulative journey, each exhibition will be presented metaphorically as a ‘movement’.
The first movement titled The Best of Times explores works within the collection which are variously engaged with the notion of time, history, mobility, death and violence, through mediums including painting, installation, photography and sculptures. The Best of Times also embraces the complex nature of ‘time’ and the ambiguity in interpreting ‘a period of time’ or ‘an era’ as the worst of times may simultaneously be the best of times.
