Bruise is an online publication providing visibility for ideas, conversations, experiments, and projects generated outside of traditional exhibition spaces by artists and their associates in dialogue with Triangle - Astérides, centre d’art contemporain in Marseille.

Bruise is an experimental space in close contact with art in the making, reflecting art's radical power to open spaces for imagining new futures. Bruise is informed by a matrix of feminist and critical value systems, that borrows from a zine history, and seeks economies of difference and inclusion with a love for contact, listening ears, and the exchange of ideas.  

Triangle France - Astérides is a 26 years old non-profit contemporary visual art organization based in “Friche la Belle de Mai”, a former tobacco factory in the center of Marseille, where it supports artists and serves diverse and expanding audiences. Triangle France - Astérides develops a yearly program of exhibitions, public events, and new commissions, as well as highly respected residencies and studio programs dedicated to Marseille-based, French, and international artists; supporting artistic research, experimentation and production. Since its founding in 1994, it has established itself as one of France’s most innovative organizations supporting French and international artists who have not yet had wide public exposure or critical acceptance from a broader public, by establishing long-term relationships with them to collaborate in the development, production and presentation of significant new projects. In 26 years, the organization has hosted more than 600 artists in residence and produced more than 130 exhibitions, with a focus on equal representation, open debate, and multiple viewpoints regardless of gender, race, class, or creed. 

Bruise is made possible with support from the CNAP Centre national des arts plastiques (aide à l'édition numérique), ministère de la Culture et de la Communication, and SUD - Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur. 

Triangle France - Astérides is supported by Ville de Marseille, Ministère de la Culture - DRAC Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, Conseil régional SUD - Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, and Conseil Départemental des Bouches-du-Rhône.
The centre d'art is a member of Triangle Network, D.C.A. - Association française de développement des centres d'art, Arts en Résidence - Réseau national, Plein Sud, Provence Art Contemporain, and is a funding member and cooperator of the SCIC Friche la Belle de Mai (a co-operative society of collective interest) where the organisation has been based for the past 26 years.
