Ada Moshinsky: Collection Curator, Ten Cubed

Ada has been a driving force behind the Ten Cubed concept, which is that over ten years, the institution will collect in depth from an evolving top ten contemporary artists working in various media forms: sculpture, painting, video art, photography and more. these artists are chosen for the aesthetic appeal and collectability of their works, and for their commitment to regular art production. in undertaking this, Ada has drawn on her many years of viewing and collecting contemporary art. In addition, she has served on a number of art boards in both the private and public arena.
