Read Submissions Policy

Submissions Policy

The Polygon Gallery does not program exhibitions through submission. However, it welcomes artists and curators who wish to update The Polygon about their work. You may send documentation of your practice, and The Polygon will endeavour to reply promptly.

Please be advised, The Polygon cannot take responsibility for the return of submitted material unless accompanied by a self-addressed stamped envelope. Do not send original artwork, and if sending documentation on CD, please include examples in hard copy format.

Please include the following:

  • An up-to-date curriculum vitae

  • A short statement about your work

  • Detailed documentation about each piece

  • If you are sending slides, please label all slides with your name and the title of the work. Place a mark on the slide mount indicating the bottom left-hand corner of the image, to aid in correctly orienting the slides for viewing.


Return Postage

Please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope. Please note that proposals with neither sufficient return postage, nor arrangements for pick-up, will not be returned.

If you are sending material from outside of Canada, please note that the postage must be Canadian. Alternatives are international postage coupons, or money orders. You may consider sending your material electronically instead.
