Currently based in New York City, she is the associate curator of public practice with Public Art Fund, a teaching artist withSwiss Institute / Contemporary Artand a member of Interference Archive. She has realized curatorial projects and developed public programs with Cooper Hewitt, the Museum of Arts and Design, and the Vera List Center for Art and Politics.

In Mexico City, where she is originally from, Gaby founded DENA—a transdisciplinary practice to design and build spaces and collaborate with other artists, mostly on architectural-scale installations.
