Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art, Market buildings, Thomas Street, Manchester, M4 1EU – Visit Now
Tucked away at the end of Thomas Street in Manchester’s Northern Quarter, Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art (CFCCA) is the number one place for experiencing Chinese contemporary art in the UK. Its dynamic programme of events and exhibitions explore and question the notion of ‘Chineseness’ in today’s world.
Established in 1986, the Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art (formerly called the Chinese Arts Centre) is the UK’s leading organisation for the promotion of contemporary Chinese art. Alongside a regularly changing programme of new exhibitions, it also commissions new work and runs artist-in-residency schemes.
From ‘sushi socks’ for salmon lovers and panda-themed eco-friendly tableware sets to jewellery, artist books and limited-edition prints, CFCCA’s shop has plenty to offer by way of left field gift buying inspiration.
Alongside Manchester Craft and Design Centre, CFCCA is one of the only public art galleries in the Northern Quarter and, in our opinion, one of the best galleries in Manchester.
