Studio Orta Les Moulins

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

Les Moulins has been the country outpost of Studio Orta since 2000. It was founded by the artists Lucy + Jorge Orta in the historical birth place of the French paper industry, the former Papeteries du Marais. Les Moulins comprises of four former industrial buildings located along an 8-Km stretch of the Grand Morin river valley. The sites include Moulin Sainte-Marie, Moulin de Boissy, Moulin la Vacherie and La Laiterie. Imagined as an extension of the artsits' practice, Les Moulins is 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, exhibition and performance venues.

Studio Orta Les Moulins is open to the general public twice a year.
