Why Collect Art + Do Good = Gabé Hirschowitz 
Cultural contributor and entrepreneur.
Founding chair, NextGen Art Party

Gabé Hirschowitz is a member of the Los Angeles Steering Committee for UNICEF’s Next Generation and the Founding Chair the Next Generation Art Party.  Throughout her studies of psychology and communication as well as journalism, Gabé gathered experiences from Carolina Herrera to Vogue. Fascinated by travel and discovering new places and cultures from an early age, Gabé’s passion for the arts – photography, fine art, film, theater, and ballet – continues to flourish with her significant work experiences at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA) and Leslie Sacks Fine Art, Brentwood. Eventually she founded COLLECT ART + DO GOOD™, a unifying force for connecting art collecting with philanthropic causes – officially being launched last November in L.A. in collaboration with Simco’s Club. Merging her passion for art with philanthropy,  she founded UNICEF’s Next Generation Art Party, an initiative that provides clean and safe water for children around the globe. The UNICEF Next Generation Art Party is now an annual event in Los Angeles.

She stands as a strong advocate for keeping the arts alive in daily school curricula as well as in everyday life to encourage free expression – and is one of the most charming L.A. art ladies on top.

In the art world currently I find most exciting that…

Eli Broad said it best, “I like the fact that art reflects what’s happening in the world, how artists see the world.” One’s pure, honest and genuine self-expression definitely excites me. Artists create true social and emotional connections that remind us why we’re all here. Creativity and vulnerability bring people closer together and it’s something that I sincerely value and support.

Number of unanswered mails in your account…
None! Anything of importance is answered within a timely manner.

My perfect working outfit…
I love a flowy top paired with white or black jeans or a feminine printed dress. Comfort is key. My outfit usually carries me from a day of gallery hopping to a work event in the evening followed by dinner with friends or family.

Favorite new brand discovery…
Tata Harper. I enjoy discovering beautiful skincare lines. I love their 100% natural & non-toxic concentrated brightening serum.

Royale Projects

Your everyday online art read is…
ArtNews, ArtInfo, LA Times, NY Times, Wall Street Journal.

Your necessary extravagance is…

Where is your next art trip/travel going to be?
Tel Aviv, first week of July.

My ultimate secret after long working hours…
Transcendental Meditation. I learned TM in the summer of 2013 and it’s truly been a blessing in my life. TM is a daily tool that helps me maintain a feeling of serenity and allows me to see things more clearly. I always love being surrounded by nature, so it`s an added bonus if I can enjoy an evening walk afterwards. Peace and happiness start from within, and then everything else falls into place quite beautifully.
My favourite collaboration of the art- and fashion world…
There have been so many wonderful collaborations of Art & Fashion, and this happens to be one of my favorite subjects to research. To name a few of my most loved: Piet Mondrian x Yves Saint Laurent, Sterling Ruby x Raf Simons, Zaha Hadid x Chanel, Keith Haring Foundation x Tommy Hilfiger, Darren Aronofsky x Rodarte, David Lynch x Christian Louboutin, Yayoi Kusama x Louis Vuitton.

My favourite hashtag…
