SYDNEY BIENNALE ARTIST PREVIEW

5.30PM - 6.30PM FRIDAY 2 MARCH 2018 

Join Biennale of Sydney Learning Coordinator Liz Bradshaw as she gives insight into the upcoming 21st Biennale of Sydney's SUPERPOSITION: EQUILIBRIUM & ENGAGEMENT which opens across multiple venues in Sydney on 16 March 2018. 

In quantum theory, ‘superposition’ refers to the ability of electrons to occupy multiple states at once, to simultaneously take opposing paths and end up in different places. It is only with the application of measurement that matter is reduced to a single definition.This biennale takes inspiration from quantum mechanics, Chinese philosophy, the Biennale Archive and the history of Sydney. 

Bradshaw will introduce some of the key ideas underpinning the 2018 edition of the Biennale focusing on art, history and artists’ practice. The event will be particularly beneficial for the arts community, teachers, lectures and students, but will be also suitable for the general public.
