Triangle France is a nonprofit association that has been based at La Friche Belle de Mai in Marseilles since 1995. It aims to promote contemporary art through a program of residencies, exhibitions, events, and publishing at La Friche Belle de Mai, but also in other French or foreign partnering places.
Triangle promotes its activities through an extensive local and international network, notably through the Triangle network that inspired its name (trianglearts.org).
Triangle is also part of the Le Cartel federation, which consists of six artistic contemporary associations in La Friche Belle de Mai. This association aims to answer questions on resource sharing. It also leads the discussion on the place of visual arts in La Friche, on the occasion of the architectural renovation of the site, which was orchestrated by Patrick Bouchain with the perspective of Marseille being chosen as the European Capital of Culture in 2013.
