I regularly pop in to CFCCA and there's always something to capture the attention. Would definitely recommend a visit

Normally I don't like Contemporary Art, but with this Gallery changes my opinion. We went over there with a class group and were very reluctant. The current exhibition was about a camera tracking the movement of the eye. As soon as you understand the concept...More

When I arrived I thought it was not going to be interesting. But finally the manager explained to me what it was for. Once I understood I found it very interesting. You can see on a screen who your eyes are looking.

I particularly like this. On a visit to the Northern Quarter we took the opportunity to visit as it often has highly-accomplished, reflective exhibitions.

What a fantastic success of the rebranding of one of Manchester's most established centres devoted to Chinese culture and arts representing artists from mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and artists of the diaspora. Has to be one of the best art spaces in the city.
