The Centre for Chinese Contemporary Arts (CFCCA)

The Centre for Chinese Contemporary Arts (CFCCA) in Manchester is a unique art gallery with a year-round programme of innovative exhibitions, talks, artist residencies and engagement projects that explores Chinese contemporary culture and art.

The organisation works closely with academic partners to develop research projects and discursive events. CFCCA has over 30 years’ experience of working with emerging and established artists to provide a space for conversation, debate and cross cultural exchange.

Its first large-scale contemporary art exhibition was Beyond the Chinese Takeaway in 1992, which represented the experiences of second and third generation British Chinese artists.
