After ten years curating the Cube art space in the Byron Council’s front office in Mullumbimby, Dev Lengel is passing the baton to artist Hannah Massey. To mark the occasion, Dev and Hannah collaborated on a topical sculptural work which draws a link between open-cut mining and potholes.

The Cube art space is the smallest gallery in the Southern Hemisphere and measures 72cm x 80cm x 80cm creating the opportunity for small scale art installations.

Local artist Victoria Edgar was the original drive behind creating the Cube art space after she saw a similar concept overseas and if came to fruition in 2009 with the help of Mr Lengel. Between 2013-2018 it was curated by Debby Gower before Mr Lengel once again took the reins again in 2018.
