TALK – Shirley Chan: Wuxing 11.45–12.15 pm Superposition Studio This 30-minute talk by Chinese culture and philosophy scholar Shirley Chan explores the Chinese concept of wuxing, from its origins to its multiple uses over time. Wuxing is a term that refers to the five elements or phases that make up the universe, and is behind the concept of ‘equilibrium’ in the title of the 21st Biennale of Sydney.
