The gallery hosts temporary exhibitions of works from the Özil Collection alternating with exhibitions in other local institutions or worldwide museums. The project aims to be an avant-gardist approach of sharing art and knowledge in the context of art business in Turkey.
The collection consists of approximatively 250 - mostly contemporary- art works and around 500 islamic ceramics from the 7th to the 19th century embracing characteristic areas of islamic art. It is curated as a confrontation between legacy of the past civilization and today's understanding of art. The temporary exhibitions held in the 2000 sqm headquarters since 2007 consist of views of several rooms extracted from the concept of "Belief Rooms" & " Sins Rooms" which are questioning the paradigms of belief and sin.
The Özil Collection is located above GaleriArtist.
