Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art (CFCCA) is leading the UK in exploring Chinese contemporary culture. We aim to make Chinese contemporary art and visual culture accessible to everyone through our exhibitions, events, shop, artist residencies, festivals, engagement programmes and research forums.

Our exhibitions are set across our intimate gallery spaces, where visitors get up close and personal with the artworks on display. We have a proud 30-year history of UK ‘first’ solo exhibitions, featuring exceptional emerging artists that go on to achieve international acclaim. Our unique events programme explores different aspects of our exhibitions and includes practical workshops, film screenings, informal talks and performances. Our shop reflects our interest in contemporary Chinese culture and stocks a range of East Asian themed jewellery, cards, prints, homeware and gifts, offering something unique for everyone.

You can find CFCCA on Thomas Street in the heart of Manchester’s creative Northern Quarter and visit our free exhibitions Tuesday-Sunday, 10am-5pm (closed on Mondays).

CFCCA is a registered charity which relies on generous support to enable us to continue providing meaningful experiences of contemporary Chinese culture to UK audiences. You can donate to CFCCA in person at our gallery and online.

You can hire CFCCA for as little as £40 per hour. The Jasmine Suite is a purpose built space perfect for seminars or private functions. For more information, you can download our Venue Hire brochure.
