Gaby López Dena works across social practice, visual art, and curation to address the relations between the built environment and its social dynamics.
Currently based in New York City, she is developing programs to connect Latinx and Latin American communites with Cooper Hewitt and curating public programs for the Museum of Arts and Design. Gaby is also a teaching artist at Swiss Institute / Contemporary Art and a member of the Education Working Group at Interference Archive. She was a fellow at the Vera List Center for Art and Politics at The New School and served as part-time faculty at Parsons School of Design, where she holds a master’s degree.
In Mexico City, Gaby founded DENA—a transdisciplinary practice to design and build spaces, develop films, and collaborate with other artists, mostly on architectural-scale installations.
