Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art (CFCCA) formerly the Chinese Arts Centre, is the national lead in bringing Chinese contemporary art and visual culture to a UK audience.

For over 30 years CFCCA has led the UK in programming, showcasing and supporting artists through exhibitions, events, artist residencies, collaborations and research projects. Through our work we explore and question the notion of ‘Chineseness’.

The CFCCA building is located in the Northern Quarter on Thomas Street, in the iconic Market Buildings. It comprises two gallery spaces, a purpose-built artist studio and residence, a shop, an Archive & Library resource and flexible events space on the lower floor.

The galleries are free to enter and open daily, along with the shop, from Wednesday to Sunday, 11am to 4pm (we are closed on Mondays, Tuesdays and Bank Holidays).

CFCCA is a registered charity and as such relies on the generous support of our audiences and partners. You can donate to CFCCA in person at our gallery, or online via our website.
