It plays an important role in presenting modern and contemporary art and was totally renovated in 2012 by the architect Boris Podrecca.

The same year Piran City Gallery gave the podium to the presentation of works by Slovene authors from the Riko Art Collection, following its programme policy of presenting established Slovene artists.

In 2008 the gallery featured the exhibition The Artist and the Computer about Eduard Zajec, one of the world pioneers of computer arts, who has Slovene roots. The exhibition was curated by Vasja Nagy and Breda Škrjanec as a derivation of his retrospective prepared in the International Centre of Graphic Arts, Ljubljana.

Exhibition, self portraits talk about artistic self portraits today, about identity during selfies; The title is a coinage of the English words self-portrait, selfish and selfie.
