Conceived in 2006 by General Manager Peter Gelb and Dodie Kazanjian, the founding director and curator, Gallery Met continues and reaffirms the Metropolitan Opera’s long history of groundbreaking relationships with major visual artists—such as Chagall and Hockney—while fostering new opportunities for collaboration. Last season marked a new program for the Gallery Met initiative, which expanded from its initial ground floor gallery to all corners of the Met’s public spaces, including the Dress Circle level of the opera house, where two monumental new paintings by Cecily Brown, commissioned by the Met, are currently on display and the Grand Tier Terrace, where a new sculpture by George Condo, also commissioned by the Met, dazzles.
