Gabriel curated The Pseudonym Project New York / Paris with established and emerging artists Robert Barry, Liam Gillick, Fouad Bouchoucha, Melanie Bonajo, Joseph Marzolla,Jonathan Monk, and more. The exhibition traveled to New York, Paris, and London.

Gabriel’s photographs were exhibited at the Photo España FestivalGalerie Le Château d’Eau and Galerie Michèle Didier in Paris, Priska Juschka Gallery in New York, and Bugdahn und Kaimer Gallery in Dusseldorf, Germany.

From Image Making to Curating an Exhibition will be divided in two parts: students will first create images in the streets of Paris during shooting sessions. The work produced will then be examined by students who will come up with a group scenography, leading to an exhibition in ESPACE F15 Gallery. This class is an opportunity to go through the whole creative process: from concept to showcasing students’ art as a cohesive body of work.
