For this section plans call for a group of artists to be guests in the region every year, with the works they produce to make up the following year’s exhibition. At the end of a year the works exhibited will be put on permanent display in the warehouse-museum. The artists in this section will represent a broad spectrum from various disciplines.
In the opening exhibition held in 2010 the contemporary art section is made up of works by Ali Kazma, Alp Sime, Aslımay Altay, Ayşen Urfalıoğlu, Aziz Sarıyer, Beril Anılanmert, Burak Bedenlier, Esma Paçal Turam, Gülay Semercioğlu, Güler Güngör, Hüsamettin Koçan, Kurucu Koçanoğlu, Murat Morova, Mürteza Fidan, Nermin Er, Ramazan Bayrakoğlu, Suzi Hug Levi, Şakir Gökçebağ, Tuğrul Selçuk and Zafer Mintaş. With "tradition and art" as their point of departure, these artists have produced works over a broad spectrum which includes sculpture, painting, video and installations.
In the Mezzanine Gallery the aim is, every year, for a designer to exhibit his/her designs based on local materials. In the museum's opening exhibition this section featured clothing made by fashion designer Özlem Süer using ehram as a fabric. Every year there will be a different designer here, and he/she will choose the designer for the following year.
