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.
The Polygon Gallery’s ongoing exhibition will premiere new work on Saturday, February 24 by Althea Thauberger with Natalie Purschwitz, and 2016 Lind Prize winner Vilhelm Sundin. Brian Jungen’s Upside Down Flagpole will also be installed at the front of the building. A public reception will be held from 7-10pm.
Public Guided Tours
Public tours of N. Vancouver will be hosted every Thursday and Saturday at 2PM. To join the tour, meet at the ground floor lobby at 1:55PM.
These tours are recommended for general visitors as an introduction to the exhibition. For a more tailored experience, visitors are encouraged to book a private guided tour with a member of our curatorial team.
