Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art (CFCCA), (2013-)

Corporate Body, GB3451/C/3
Biography
The Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art (CFCCA) began life as the Chinese Art Centre in 1989. 

From 2008 the Chinese Art Centre changed its focus to become an international agency for Chinese contemporary art, working with artist and organisations from across East Asia. This led to the rebranding of the organisation as the Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art (CFCCA) in November 2013. In 2014 CFCCA became a major partner in the third Asia Triennial Manchester, curating Harmonious Society, which brought 30 artists to 6 venues in Manchester.

In 2016, the Centre commemorated its 30th anniversary with a programme of events and exhibitions featuring artists, curators and academics who had previously worked with the organisation.
