Vancouver, with impressive work that looks at the city, past and present. The 25,000-square-foot facility replaces the former Presentation House Gallery and is the largest photo-focused exhibition space in Western Canada. N. Vancouver, on view until April 29, 2018, includes newly commissioned works from 15 regional artists, with existing pieces from various public and private collections. “It’s really important to me that the first exhibition in this new building really reflects a view of our hometown but also of the North Shore and its long history,” says Reid Shier, Polygon’s executive director. “Tension around land, ownership and use is a conversation that is very evident in North Vancouver.” Conflicts between nature and industry and the community’s evolution from a working-class enclave to a cosmopolitan metropolis, form the underlying spine of the show.
