Chase Hall

Gallery Met Director Dodie Kazanjian commissioned Chase Hall to create Medea, Act I & II (Feuerbach & van Loo), a 6 ¾-by-18 feet diptych of acrylic and coffee on canvas installed on the Dress Circle. With bright colors and tumbling lines, the work evokes motion and struggle, trauma and beauty. It rewards careful study, as intricate patterns emerge, transform, and ricochet in shapes that chart surprising revolutions across the canvas.

Chase Hall was born in 1993 in St. Paul, Minnesota. The 2022-23 season marks his first collaboration with the Met Opera. In addition to the diptych, Hall created a banner image for Champion.
