Conceived by General Manager Peter Gelb and Dodie Kazanjian, the founding director and curator, Gallery Met continues and reaffirms the Met’s long history of groundbreaking relationships with major visual artists—such as Chagall and Hockney—while fostering new opportunities for collaboration. Since the 2018–19 season, Gallery Met has expanded from its initial ground floor gallery to all corners of the Met’s grand public spaces.

A gift from Marie Schwartz made this initiative possible in 2006.
