Thomas P. Campbell is Director and CEO of the Met. Since assuming the post in 2009, Campbell has focused on scholarship and accessibility. These priorities maintain the Museum's excellence in its exhibitions, publications, acquisitions, and permanent collections while encouraging new thinking about the visitor experience.
Campbell has been at the Met since 1995, when he came to the Museum as a curator of tapestries. Before becoming Director, he conceived and organized the major exhibitions Tapestry in the Renaissance: Art and Magniﬁcence (2002) and Tapestry in the Baroque: Threads of Splendor (New York, 2007; Madrid, spring 2008), both of which received widespread acclaim.
TEDxMet came about after Campbell gave his own TED talk, "Weaving Narratives in Museum Galleries" in 2012.
