15 June-30 September, Bayram Candan: There will be a dedicated area of works from this late sculptor whose work arises from a feeling of urgency to freeze in sculpture a "single moment" of quotidian objects and people which will never again be seen in that particular size, color, vitality and freshness. The featured works are mainly from the exhibition "There Is A Strike At This Establishment", in which he touches on how little control individuals have over their bodies, their lives and their labor with a tongue-in-cheek approach through a character named 'Ayşe', a very common Turkish female name.
21 June-15 July, Kadir Akorak: Prominent architect and painter, known for his poetic and fantasy paintings. Akorak’s paintings receive their subject matter from his own life, from his inner world and memories. In his paintings, he represents his own recollections and creates dreamlike compositions.
19 July-12 August, Hüsamettin Koçan: One of Turkey’s distinguished artists whose works are influenced by Anatolian culture: myths, symbols, shamanism, disruption, sight and disguise are all the concepts he uses in his artworks.
