Astérides supports the production and dissemination of work by young contemporary artists, particularly through residency programmes for artists and art critics as well as exhibitions, publishing and organising workshops and producing diverse works.

The artists in residence are selected by a jury following a bi-annual call for applications. They gain a 90m2 studio for a six-month period in refurbished spaces in refurbished work areas at La Friche, and in addition a residency stipend. During the six months, Astérides organises visits to workshops, networking with professionals and gives the artists the opportunity to carry out work and research with all the artists on site and an art critic invited to the residency, culminating in a meeting with the public, an exhibition and publication.

Astérides promotes artists travelling overseas through exchange programmes with the Iaab in Basel (Switzerland) and the Fonderie Darling in Montreal (Canada). They allow foreign artists and art critics to benefit from Astérides' favourable conditions conducive to their output. These programmes, with the same support, accompany French artists in their work and raise awareness of it abroad.

Astérides' work reaches a wide audience thanks to the major group exhibitions on site of artists that have completed residencies in the past and those currently undertaking same at the Friche.  In addition, Astérides facilitates the production of diverse works of art they distribute in art fairs, bookshops and on their website, as well as the design and distribution of published works that explore all their activities.  

Established at la Friche since 1992, founded by four artists, the association openly embraces the nature of this bridging space whose function is to furnish artists in residence with the necessary tools to integrate professional art networks.
