The CCA has been at the centre of Glasgow’s art scene for 25 years. Its year-round programme includes exhibitions, film, music, literature, festivals, Gaelic and performance. Join a building tour or come to Take One Action's short film screenings.
Designed in 1868 by Alexander Greek Thomson, and previously home to The Third Eye Centre (1975-1991), the building is steeped in history and the organisation has played a key role in the cultural life of the city for decades. Our broad and experimental programme encourages a diverse audience to experience the arts, with 348,211 visitors in 2017.
CCA curates six major exhibitions a year, presenting national and international contemporary artists. We are also home to Intermedia Gallery, showcasing emerging artists. Entrance to exhibitions is free. During Doors Open Day, CCA’s exhibition will focus on the recently completed archive of Czech new wave filmmaker Ester Krumbachová, examining the broad spectrum of her interests and achievements. Join us for a tour of the building and exhibition on Saturday, 11am or Sunday, 1pm.
Saramago Café Bar serves fresh, tasty food every day, and stocks a range of quality beers, wines and juices, in a relaxed atmosphere.
In 2017, CCA won the Best Cultural Venue award at the Glasgow Awards in 2017 for the third year running; the Arts & Culture Award at The Herald Inspiring City Awards and Unique Venue of the Year at the Scottish Event Awards. CCA also received a commendation for Best Performing Arts Venue at the Sunday Herald Culture Awards, and was shortlisted in the Glasgow Business Awards (Innovation in Youth Employment) and The Icon Awards (Venue of the Year).
Due to the ongoing cordon following the recent Glasgow School of Art fire, the Centre for Contemporary Art will not be open during Doors Open Days.
