Inspiring creative fun for everyone
During GOMA's 10th birthday celebrations visitors will be able to return to some of their favourite artworks and creative GOMA experiences. Enchanted Spaces is one such exhibition which has made a comeback from The 5th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art. Head to the top floor of GOMA to be charmed by this delightful experience once again.

Pakistani-born artist Nusra Latif Qureshi shares some of her charismatic artworks using the traditional techniques of Mughal miniature painting, whereby tiny traditional miniatures are painted within other paintings. It is this technique, once used exclusively for royalty, which has inspired the Enchanted Spaces exhibition.

Visitors can create their own manuscript by selecting a template and using the light box silhouettes for tracing. A range of ornate outlines of plants and animals can then be selected to create your own Mughal inspired piece.

Enchanted Spaces is part of the GOMA kids program. This will appeal mostly to older children, teens and adults due to the concentration required. The exhibition is free to visit and runs daily from December 3 2016 to April 17 2017.
