TAKING art to a whole new level, the party going on at Brisbane's GOMA (Gallery of Modern Art) is comparable to Willy Wonker's world.

GOMA is turning 10 this year and to celebrate, they've put on an exhibition called Sugar Spin, and it's seriously fun.

Here's a few things you can do to get your fun senses tingling…

1.       Ride the slippery slide: What place does a slide have in a serious art museum? Artist Carsten Höller, a former biologist, reckons it should take centre stage! He creates works to make scientific and philosophical experiments with the aim for reshaping expectations about art.

2.       Build Brisbane out of lego: Artist Olafur Eliasson's highly interactive piece The Cubic Structural Evolution Project is set on a long table facing the Brisbane CBD skyline. On the table lies thousands of white lego bricks that the audience is invited to play with and build their own city.

3.       Sleep with giants: Artist Ron Mueck's gigantic woman lying in bed is so life-like we swear if you look away for a second she'd come to life.

4.       Dance with a heard of raffia horses: To close GOMA's Summer Festival, 30 dancers will bring American Sculptor abd performance artist Nick Cave's HEARD to life.

5.       Stroke the furry wall: Check out Icelandic artist Hrafnhildur Arnardóttir's exhibition all about hair. Yes, bright, fluffy, amazing hair. It's totally strange, and totally amazing.
