Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA)
Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA) fosters a wide range of artistic, curatorial, and critical practices through five programme streams: research and production, exhibition-making, public programmes, publishing, and residencies.
Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA) developed out of the Context Gallery in The Playhouse. Since its conception in 1992, the gallery has exhibited emerging artists from Northern Ireland alongside international peers.
CCA’s activities builds on the history of the Context Gallery but has a wider mandate, fostering a range of artistic, curatorial, and critical practices, locally, regionally and internationally. CCA opened in the autumn of 2012 in a space designed by Michael Carr Architects.
CCA has collaborated with Art in General, New York; Artsonje, Seoul; Beirut, Cairo; Belfast Exposed, Belfast; Britto Arts Trust, Dhaka; Casco, Utrecht; Collective, Edinburgh; FormContent, London; Independent Curators International, New York; Kunsthalle Lissabon; Lisbon; Limerick City Gallery of Art, Limerick; The Showroom, London; Temple Bar Gallery+Studios, Dublin; amongst others.
