Book Reading |
Going Public chronicles former SEC official Norm Champ’s experiences at the agency and how they shed light on the regulatory process and government policy-making. When Champ joined the SEC in 2009, the agency was under immense pressure to reign in Wall Street. There was little doubt the SEC had to fix rules that permitted bad behavior and start to enforce existing laws. Champ was eager to be a part of this positive change. He soon realized, however, that not everyone shared his enthusiasm for ushering in reform. Going Public offers a behind-the-scenes look at the SEC's arcane culture and Champ's efforts to lead reforms to stabilize an American financial system that was on the brink of disaster.Feel free to bring your lunch.

Opening Reception |
Antonio Scaccabarozzi (Merate, Italy 1936-2008) and Marthe Keller (b. New York, 1948) belong to different artistic generations, had different cultural upbringings, lived on different continents, (although Keller has been present in Europe, and particularly in Italy, for a long time), and experimented with different styles. If we systematically compare their works, however, the two painters seem to move from similar visual problems, and suggest answers that unexpectedly relate to each other. Both artists base the perceptual dynamics of their works on the experience of seeing through.
