Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art, Market buildings, Thomas Street, Manchester, M4 1EU – Visit Now

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. Housed in a dedicated space just by the former Smithfield Market in Manchester’s Northern Quarter, it also contains a small shop selling contemporary craft, jewellery and printed materials.

The centre was rebranded in 2013 as the Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art. The new logo was created by Manchester design studio Ideas by Music.
