Gabriel Chalfin-Piney

Gabriel Chalfin-Piney is a multidisciplinary artist and organizer, with a background in performance and exhibition-making for artists and nonprofits. Gabriel’s art practice pulls from olfactory, gustatory and tactile explorations, oral history interviewing, practices of play, care, and abolition, family-style eating, tattooing, object-making and collecting, puppetry, mold, and meditation, prompting audience members to participate as co-creators. 

Gabriel holds an MA in Arts Administration and Policy from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a BA in Art History from SUNY New Paltz. They have shown work at the Dorsky Museum, Panoply Lab, High Concept Labs, and Grace Exhibition Space.
