In 30 years, Triangle Network has worked with over 4,200 artists and 70 organisations in more than 60 countries in Africa, Middle East, Asia, Europe, Latin American and Australia.
Networked brings together leading artists, curators, organisers and network experts from over 40 countries to debate the increasing role of cultural networks in supporting artists and art organisations world-wide. Speakers will address the latest issues and trends in the context of the current economic and political climate.

Conference topics include:
What are the cultural principles and ethics that guide cultural networks?
How can networks support artists and the production of new work?
What network strategies are currently used and can new approaches be developed from shared experiences?
Why are cultural networks becoming so important at local, national and international level?
Is joint fundraising the answer to small-scale organisations in the current economic climate?
Do collaborative models threaten the independence of artists and organisations?
What are the main threats and challenges to cultural networks?

Speakers from over 20 countries will consider these questions through presentations, panel discussions and workshops. Please visit for full list of speakers.
At you can also purchase tickets and access the conference blog, where you will find texts and links from network experts. Join the debate to voice what is most urgent to artists and cultural organisers at this time - your contribution will help to shape the conference discussions and breakout sessions.
The conference will be recorded and videos of each session will be posted on the Triangle Network website shortly after the event.
Networked is hosted and sponsored by Bloomberg, with support from Arts Collaboratory, Arts Council England and Prince Claus Fund. The conference media parter is The Art Newspaper.
Lulu, a performance of Roxane Borujerdi and Clément Rodzielski, Septembre 30, at 9 pm [mac], 8 €.

Actoral 11th offers to Roxane Borujerdi and Clément Rodzielski the opportunity to work together, a wish that has emerged for a long time, when they were still students at the Beaux Arts of Paris,
Both dealing with the changing nature of common materials, they offer to combine two activation protocols used in their own practices, in a sculptural and epiphanic show, recalling the concepts of waiting and invisibility.
What defines a show ? What does it mean to be a member of the audience ?
So many questions that remain unanswered as long as Roxane and Clément don't achieve their performance.

Lecture-performance by Christophe Fiat and Hubert Colas
Thursday, May 26th 2011at 7pm at the Galerie of the Friche Belle de Mai, The Tower, 2nd floor, 41 rue Jobin, 13003 Marseilles

Lecture - performed Kathy Acker a du coeur by Christophe Fiat
(inedit text - commande of actOral /Montévidéo for A vous de lire!)
Lecture Around de Kathy Acker, choosen extracts, voice by Hubert Colas, by Thierry Raynaud

Born in 1966, French, author, performer and director
To paraphrase Johnny Thunders who said: “I only play rock ‘n’ roll for kids to dance”, Christophe
Fiat could say “I just write books to make kids read”. And in the same time, keep their
head away from the ambiantal ultra-nostalgy (“Things went better last week”) the wimpy
ponytails of the past century, or the “We have to choose between suffering or working” which
is what the boomers of finance want to dictate.
Reappropriating the pop codes, Christophe Fiat takes his inspiration in borderline cultures
(pornography, dread), called with a certain disdain as subculture. Christophe Fiat shows that,
firstly, the subculture is also art and then secondly, subculture is the first of all the sens of
The style as a significant practice, revolted and revolting. By this way, he brings his performative
practice and his reflection in the life side, in transgression.
Using the breath of the epic, Christophe Fiat puts fun in it, makes it erotical.
Cynics in need of ECT may be seen as teenager poses. Why not? Christophe Fiat, the eternal
youth. Yes, as long as people believe in metaphors.

Philosopher, literary critics and professor at the University of Colombia (NY)
Sylvère Lotringer is a literary critic and cultural theorist. A younger contemporary of Gilles
Deleuze, Félix Guattari, Jean Baudrillard, Paul Virilio and Michel Foucault, he is best known for synthesizing French theory with American literary, cultural and architectural avant-garde movements through his work with the journal Semiotext(e); and for his interpretations of French theory in the 21st century context. Major interpreter of Jean Baudrillard’s theories, Lotringer invented the concept «extrapolationist» as mean to describe the hyperbolic worldviews espoused by Baudrillard and Paul Virilio. His last book, À satiété, has been published at Laurence Viallet Editions in 2006.

When addictions take the form, cross conference by Dorothée Dupuis and Géraldine Gourbe , Thursday, April 28th 2011 at 7pm at the Galerie of the Friche Belle de Mai, The Tower, 2nd floor, 41 rue Jobin, 13003 Marseilles

When addiction takes the form opens evenings (conference, reading and performance) in the framework of the exhibition Ruling 'n' Freaking. Dorothy and Geraldine Dupuis Gourbi present the challenges of collaborative project K. Acker: The Office, a post-feminist approach to philosophy and articulate curatorial from a particular reading of the texts of Kathy Acker, American Jewish writer, close to William Burroughs David Antin, Avital Ronell, Sylvère Lotringer etc..
Kathy Acker, in the cultural context and activist in New York for years 70 and 80, has developed policies and sensible forms of representation that are reminiscent of the complex relations of self-control and total letting go of addictive behaviors. This line of text reading Kathy Acker resonates especially in contemporary visual and conceptual productions as suggested exposure Ruling 'n' Freaking. This presentation will conclude with a discussion with the audience.

Lecture by Dominique Hurth
Thursday 24th march 2011 at 7 pm at Vendetta, Galerie de la Friche Belle de Mai, La Tour, 2nd floor, 41 rue Jobin, 13003 Marseilles

Following the festival Actoral , Triangle is planning a few events art & theater for this new year 2011.You will of course be informed by our website and our newsletter. Be patient... Soon: a parisian launching of the catalog OUTSKIRTING by the Bad Beuys Entertainment.

avec Mathis Collins, Marcelline Delbecq, Lidwine Prolonge
Festival for contemporary writtings, from sept 25th to oct 8th 2010 at Montévideo, 3 impasse Montévideo, 13006 Marseille

Triangle France is proud to annonce it's renewal partnership with Montevideo for Actoral, international festival for contemporary writing, for 2010.
This year, our proposition is about notions of ellipsis and gaps: with Marcelline Delbecq, it's a temporal ellipsis, where coexists in the same filmic-space disconnected temporality, forgotten moves of elegant crowds; with Lidwine Prolonge, it's about historic gaps making visible the frightening sinkhole of possibles less cataclysmics, eve of 1939 still free of evil intentions, but already of hidden secrets; and finally for Mathis Collins, physical gaps, literales, plug with fragile cork heads...The performers will try with their voices and actions to fulfill these emptynesses, unless they want to explore it's fatal necessity, in the fullfiled human existences. Written, directed and performed by the artists, these performances are a piece of evidence of contemporary vivacity applyed to a stage.

Like many artists, Matthieu Clainchard collects objects and pieces of art that inspired him.
Closely related to the exhibition IT'S LIKE A JUNGLE SOMETIMES. IT MAKES ME WONDER HOW I KEEP FROM GOING UNDER during 2010 spring at the Galerie of la friche la Belle de Mai organised by Triangle France, Matthieu Clainchard presented OPÉRATION COLLECTIONNITE at the auction sale room of Damien LECLERE .
This residence in business enterprise, was made possible by the studios of Euromediterrannée, Marseille Provence Capitale Européenne de la Culture 2013, the association Triangle France and the auction sale house Damien Leclère.
Developped as a residencie, this project, lead in collaboration with the study team of the house Leclère took the form of "an exhibitionas an auction sale". The opération collectionnite presented works of the artists with linked to the notion of collecting, different objects took from his personnal collection, discoverys found in the stocks of the auction sale house but also "dobles of a few pieces of his own collection" of contemporary art.
The artist who likes to cloud the issues introduced himself as a producer, collector and curator of an exhibition where the "objects" each having a different status in his work are no less important.
Born in the beginning of the year, the project lead to a short exhibition on april the 12th 2010, a sale and the production of a catalog gathering works presented and critic essays by Galien Déjan and Dorothée Dupuis.

a performance by Kiss Me Deadly at Petit Théâtre de la Friche La Belle de Mai, Wednesday March 17th 2010 at 8pm

A performance result of the ARC Kiss Me Deadly
Petit Théâtre de la Friche La Belle de Mai, Wed, March 17th, 2010, 8pm
In a wish to join the transdisplinary mind of the Friche La Belle de Mai, Triangle to investigate again with contemporary art the theatre of la Friche with performing artists of the ARC (Atelier of Research and Creation) Kiss Me Deadly, for an amazing evening and high level of experimentation.
The students of the Superior National Art School of Paris-Cergy, directed by their teachers Jeff Guess, Eric Maillet, Judith Perron and Mathilde Villeneuve, were then able to fly away from the school frame, but also from the white cube to play with the codes of artistic performance in a place ordered with theater rules. The ARC Kiss Me Deadly offered a reflection on performance through different types of media, from sound and visual installations to more classic contemporary art interventions on scenic spaces.
