About me

Alice Black graduated from ESSEC Business School in France and began her career in banking in New York. Formerly Head of Strategy and Planning at the Imperial War Museum and Curator of the Churchill Museum and Cabinet War Rooms, she has in-depth knowledge of museums’ strategic and operational issues. In September 2007, she was appointed Deputy Director of the Design Museum, with a brief to develop audiences and increase self-generated income. This brief was later expanded to include exhibitions and programming. She led the museum's project to transform the former Commonwealth Institute building in Kensington High Street into the new home for the museum and create the leading museum of contemporary design and architecture in the UK. Alice was appointed director of the Design Museum in December 2016.
