Talk with Paul Leong & Pip Day
Presented in collaboration with La Biennale de Montréal as part of BNLMTL 2014, L'avenir (looking forward).
Swedish artist duo Goldin+Senneby approached investment banker Paul Leong for consultation in developing the algorithm they have used to inform “M&A” - a collaborative work of art activated and consequently de-activated by fluctuations in the stock market. In the context of their exhibition at SBC, and in collaboration with the BNLMTL 2014, L’avenir (looking forward), Goldin+Senneby have invited Paul Leong to speak with SBC Director and Curator, Pip Day, on subjects of speculation, notions of risk, and the relationship between art and finance.
Paul Leong is a Senior Vice President in the real estate group of Macquarie Capital, a leading global banking and financial services group.
