From fashion to fine arts and art consulting, the throughline for Gabé Braunstein (née Gabé Hirschowitz) has always been that art should be accessible and deeply intertwined with daily life. The founder of UNICEF’s groundbreaking Next Generation Art Party and former Acquisitions Committees manager at The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles (MOCA), she has a long history of supporting new and emerging artists, merging the same instincts into her art advising and philanthropic efforts.
In addition to founding GaleriePerrie.com, she has also continued to combine her passion for art with philanthropy, co-founding the Young Leadership Board of Vista Del Mar Child and Family Services in Los Angeles and founding the COLLECT ART + DO GOOD™ organization, which has benefited Stand Up To Cancer, Make-A-Wish Foundation and other worthy causes. In 2016, her philanthropic work was recognized by President Barack Obama, who awarded Gabé the Presidential Volunteer Service Award for her efforts supporting UNICEF’s Tap Project, which brings clean, safe drinking water to vulnerable children around the globe.
Meanwhile, she has remained highly involved in the art and fashion industries. She is an active member of numerous art institutions and museums in Los Angeles, New York, Paris, London and Sydney and has held a variety of positions with Carolina Herrera, Nina Ricci, Italian Vogue, Teen Vogue, BWR Public Relations, The Museum of Contemporary Art: Los Angeles (MOCA), Leslie Sacks Fine Art: Brentwood, C Magazine, Modern Luxury, Clique Media, and The Tel Aviv Museum of Art.
A graduate of the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, she also regularly contributes to a diverse array of publications on the topics of art, culture, health, beauty and lifestyles and serves as an art consultant for a wide range of collectors.
