Working closely with contemporary artists, much of her curatorial work has consisted in conceptualizing meeting points—in the form of exhibitions, events, or printed matter—that allow audiences to experience art in unconventional ways. In the past decade, Hernández Chong Cuy has worked at Art in General, Americas Society, and the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College, all in New York. She has curated exhibitions for Kadist Art Foundation in Paris, Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires, and the Contemporary Art Center in Vilnius.
