The Chinese Contemporary Art collection has been developed since 2013, mainly in partnership with the Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art (CFCCA) and Open Eye Gallery. The artists range from emerging through to established, and come from mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and the diaspora. It is a broad collection with a variety of themes.

The collection was first shown in its entirety from 9 February – 3 June 2018, at PRESENCE: A Window into Chinese Contemporary Art in St George’s Hall, Liverpool as part of the city’s China Dream season. Following the popular tour, a selection of works are now on display in Salford until January.
