New Collection of Chinese Contemporary Art

This unique collection has been developed mainly since 2013 and largely in partnership with the Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art (CFCCA) in Manchester.   In October 2013 the University of Salford signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art (CFCCA), based in Manchester.  For over 30 years CFCCA has curated and presented ‘first’ UK solo exhibitions featuring exceptional artists that go on to achieve international acclaim.

The artists range from emerging through to established, and artworks vary from painting, photography, sculpture, video and installation. What links these works is the artists’ connection with Northwest England and how, in different ways, they each reflect the changing world that we live in.
