Loic Tallon

Loic Tallon is the former Chief Digital Officer at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City, where he led the digital transformation and the Digital department until March 2019.

Loic’s work focuses on the potential of technology to transform how audiences connect with knowledge and culture on a global scale. In his five years at The Met, he led the museum’s decision to release all high-resolution photos of public-domain artworks under CC0, free for users around the world to use, remix, and share as they wish. He also expanded The Met’s reach by building partnerships with Wikipedia, Google, Microsoft and MIT through which over 100 million users a year can now connect to knowledge, creativity and ideas through The Met’s encyclopedic art collection.
