V/DA - Sonic Séance: The Gathering, 2019. Photography by Alan Dimmick.

CCA curates several major exhibitions every year. We present a wide range of Scottish and international contemporary artists in our gallery space.

The programme seeks to support Glasgow based artists and show their work to a wider public. We bring international artists to CCA to present important new work or models of artistic practice from around the world. We are also home to Intermedia Gallery, showcasing emerging artists.

Artists who have exhibited at CCA over the years include:

Kate Davis, Faith Wilding, Frances Stark, Rosalind Nashashibi, Mariana Castillo Deball, Olivia Plender, Sarnath Banerjee, Harun Farocki, Jeremy Millar, Ross Sinclair, Janine Antoni, Narelle Jubelin, Tracey Moffat, Bik van der Pol, Gregor Wright, Marvin Gaye Chetwynd, Pilvi Takala, Ross Birrell, Merlin James, V/DA, Sahej Rahal, Rachel Maclean, Basma alSharif, Rehana Zaman, Emilia Beatriz, Shuvinai Ashoona and Abraham Cruzvillegas.

Intermedia is an independent gallery space managed by CCA in partnership with Glasgow Life. The gallery is on the second floor of CCA, and operates independently of CCA’s curated exhibition programme. Exhibitions are selected by a panel that includes CCA, Glasgow Life and the city’s independent visual arts sector. Exhibiting artists receive funding towards exhibition costs. Artists take full responsibility for organising, installing, publicising, invigilating and de-installing their exhibition. CCA has hosted Intermedia since 2006, when it moved here from King Street.
