The Polygon Gallery opens its doors to the world on November 18 with its inaugural exhibition N. Vancouver, the organization's most ambitious project to date, providing an opportunity for the Gallery's first audiences to witness the imaginative possibilities of visual artworks in discourse with the immediate surroundings of its new home.

Reflecting the shifting nature of their locale, existing and specially commissioned works, primarily in the medium of photography, will evolve over the course of the exhibition, bringing new works by the invited artists into the exhibition during its run. A publication, assembling material about North Vancouver and its diverse histories, will later be published in spring 2018.
