Dundee Contemporary Arts is an art centre in the city of Dundee, Scotland which houses two contemporary art galleries, a two-screen cinema, a print studio, a visual research centre and a café bar.
The Visual Research Centre is a unique facility dedicated to practice-led research. Based on the lower floors of DCA, it is part of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, University of Dundee, and is home to research staff and doctoral students from across all Design, Art & Media disciplines.
"DCA has a significance way beyond its role as Dundee's gallery and social gathering space and even beyond its success in regenerating the cultural life of the city. The artists represented round the walls, even in the three years it has been open, are a roll call of who's who in contemporary visual arts in the UK and Europe" Sunday Times 2002
