You are invited to 30 years of CFCCA
Thursday 4 February
Artists: Xu Bing
We would like to invite you to the launch of 30 years of CFCCA, a very special anniversary programme of exhibitions and events featuring some of the best Chinese contemporary artists working today.
Join us on the evening of Thursday 4 February to celebrate with opening speeches from Sir Richard Leese (Leader of Manchester City Council), artist Gordon Cheung and Simon Mellor (National Director of Arts, Arts Council England) and enjoy a selection of drinks, canapes and music.
In the galleries we’ll be unveiling an exhibition charting the timeline of CFCCA’s history; presenting internationally-acclaimed artist Xu Bing’s Book from the Ground project for the first time in the UK; and showcasing Rarekind China’s graffiti art project. Across the building we’re excited to be displaying newly commissioned works by Manchester artist Stanley Chow and a site specific installation by artist Lu Xinjian.
Places are limited so please RSVP by Friday 15 January
