Studio Orta Les Moulins

Lieu-dit Le Moulin Sainte-Marie
rue des Papeteries, 77169 Boissy-le-Châtel, France

Studio Orta Les Moulins was founded in 2000 by the artists Lucy + Jorge Orta, in the historical birth place of the French paper industry, the former Papeteries du Marais. Located along an 8-Km stretch of the Grand Morin river valley (map) the Les Moulins complex comprises of four former industrial buildings: Moulin Sainte-Marie, Moulin de Boissy, Moulin la Vacherie and La Laiterie. Imagined as an extension of their practice, Studio Orta's collective project is now dedicated to the creation and presentation of new forms of contemporary art. Over years of careful restoration, the former factories set within landscaped grounds and a sculpture park, have become a veritable cultural laboratory including artist studios, workshops, residencies, and exhibition and performance venues.

Studio Orta is open to the general public twice a year. Subscribe to newsletter for further information.
