Studio Orta Les Moulins
Studio Orta Les Moulins was founded by Lucy + Jorge Orta, in 2000, in the historical birth place of the French paper industry, the former Papeteries du Marais. Located along an 8km stretch of the Grand Morin river valley (map) the complex of industrial buildings that now comprise Les Moulins include, the Moulin Sainte-Marie, Moulin de Boissy, Moulin La Vacherie and La Laiterie.
The artists created Les Moulins as collective environment dedicated to the development of new forms of contemporary art and over years of careful restoration the complex has become a veritable cultural laboratory. Comprised of artist studios, workshops, residencies, exhibition galleries, performance venues and a sculpture park, Studio Orta Les Moulins has hosted artists and researchers from around the world, to imagine artworks that resonate with the history of the place and to re-imagine the future.
