Chris Michaels

Digital Director, National Gallery


Leading digital transformation in the cultural sector. I sit on the National Gallery board with a remit to bring real, meaningful and lasting change to an institution which will be 200 years old in 2024. Immersive media, particularly VR, holds rich potential for the arts. I was previously Head of Digital at the British Museum, where we completed VR partnerships with Samsung, with Oculus Rift/Facebook and with Google. Prior to that I ran a start up, and led digital functions in TV, publishing and advertising.
