Building closure in response to second lockdown
In-line with government requirements in response to increasing cases of COVID-19 Coronavirus in the UK, the CFCCA galleries and building will close at 3pm on Wednesday 4th November 2020. This slightly earlier closing will allow for the staff team to make all necessary preparations to safely close the building and secure all artworks on site.
Those with pre-existing bookings will be contacted by Wednesday 4th November.
With thanks and appreciation to our exhibiting and collaborating artists for working with us to continue to present important creative experiences, despite the many challenges which face the cultural sector at this time.
And to our understanding gallery visitors – we will be back with you as soon as we possibly can.
The CFCCA team
While our doors are closed, you can connect with CFCCA’s collaborative digital projects throughout November:
Peer to Peer: UK/HK
Online Festival, 11-14 Nov 2020, register now.
Led by University of Salford Art Collection, Open Eye Gallery and CFCCA, this free and open-to-all digital festival presents a programme of international panel events with UK and Hong Kong based artists, curators and galleries, discussing vital and topical themes affecting visual arts across the world. Generously supported by Arts Council England and the GREAT campaign.
Responding to the portrayal of and prejudice displayed towards people of Chinese and East Asian heritage in the West during the COVID-19 pandemic, this multidisciplinary work explores nineteen different perspectives that relate to isolation, media and mental health. These will be presented on social media as a moving image or still photography, accompanied by various combinations of music, dance and spoken word. Co-commissioned with Chinese Arts Now (CAN).
