The Bookstore

The Polygon Gallery Bookstore, on the second floor, showcases international photobooks, magazines and postcards, by publishers such as Aperture, Mack Books and the Archive of Modern Conflict, alongside its own publications.

The Polygon has developed a unique strength in publishing, tackling both regional and international art in focused detail. Publications range from scholarly catalogues to unique artist-driven projects. The Gallery sees its role as publisher, both in print and in newly emerging online formats, as a vital facet of its mandate.

In addition to providing a lasting legacy of the visual art of this region and a promotional tool about and for individual artists, these publications nurture the growth of new critical voices by emerging and established authors.

All purchases made in The Polygon Shop and Bookstore support the Gallery’s exhibitions and education programs.
