CFCCA is a contemporary art gallery and venue that has been in the heart of Manchester for over 30 years. Through a rich programme of exhibitions, events, artist residencies and more we bring Chinese contemporary art to a UK audience.

We are the national lead in presenting and promoting Chinese contemporary art and artists to further understanding of Chinese contemporary life and society. We work with both artists of Chinese descent and a range of international artists to explore the notion of ‘Chineseness’. This makes for a diverse, dynamic and exciting programme, exploring what Chinese contemporary culture represents to artists from across the globe.

Through our artistic programme we support artists, curators, academics and audiences to interrogate Chinese contemporary art and visual culture. We show and commission the work of exceptional artists and provide artists in residence the opportunity to make innovative work. We engage a broad audience, inspiring and supporting people to respond creatively.
