In light of the Chinese Art Centre (CAC)'s recent rebrand to the Centre for Contemporary Chinese Art (CFCCA), this case study endeavours to trace the organisation's ontological trajectory from its origins in Manchester's Chinatown to its current location, considering how its purpose and focus have changed in relation to how it identifies and translates Chinese Art to a local and/or global audience. Furthermore, I consider how the organisation has both addressed and embodied changing diversity discourses in Britain through its mission to represent Chinese culture1.
