GOMA is turning 10 – how sweet! Headlining the celebrations is Sugar Spin, featuring over 250 contemporary artworks exploring light, space, architecture and the senses. From brand-new immersive works to large-scale visitor favourites, the exhibition reflects our complex connections to the natural world with an explosion of colour, sensation and spinning delights.

Major new artworks include Nervescape, a multi-coloured landscape of synthetic hair by Icelandic-born artist Hrafnhildur Arnardóttir (aka Shoppy), and the electrifying Heard by American sculptor and performance artist Nick Cave, a group of vibrant sculptural horses brought to life by dancers.

Sugar Spin also marks the return of Carsten Höller's much-loved Left/Right Slide, spiralling visitors from the top floor of GOMA to the bottom; Ron Mueck's oversized In bed; Olafur Eliasson's interactive installation of thousands of white Lego pieces The cubic structural evolution project; and Céleste Boursier-Mougenot's musical installation of live finches, from here to ear (v.13) 2010.

Complex connections between humanity and the natural world are celebrated and reconceived in Sugar Spin as it draws visitors between distinctive chapters – sweet-melt, white out, blackwater, soaring, garden and cosmos – establishing a dramatic itinerary through GOMA's unique exhibition spaces, reflecting the urgent challenges of our day, as well as the beauty of the world we live in.
