Dieu Donné is a 7,000 square foot hand papermaking studio, gallery, and archive located in the Fashion District of midtown Manhattan. Visual artists work in collaboration with highly skilled artistic staff to create both unique and editioned two- and three-dimensional works.

Over the past thirty years, Dieu Donné has produced works in collaboration with The Aldrich Museum of Art, Lower East Side Printshop, Isis, Axelle Editions, Fawbush Editions, Pace Prints, The Whitney Museum of American Art Library, among others.

Many significant artists have worked with Dieu Donné artistic staff and paper, including: Richard Artschwager, Louise Bourgeois, Chuck Close, Jane Hammond, William Kentridge, Glenn Ligon, Robert Ryman, Kiki Smith, Richard Tuttle, and many others.

Collaborative Projects

Dieu Donné offers unique opportunities to produce individual works and editions with print shops and publishers through collaborative artists’ projects. Artistic staff consult with artists and publishers to develop innovative methods of production which may incorporate other printmaking techniques or processes.

Custom Paper & Materials

Dieu Donné produces custom paper and materials for a variety of applications, including: painting, drawing, sculpture, photographic and digital prints, and more. The studio produces handmade papers with museum archival standards while also allowing the artist freedom with materials of their choice.

Sheet forming capabilities range up to 7 x 10 feet.

Custom paper is created using a variety of traditional fiber sources, such as cotton, linen, abaca, raw flax, and Asian fibers such as kozo and gampi. Our paper can range from thick, heavy-weight sheets to translucent ethereal skins and infinite other possibilities.

Artist Publishing Projects

Artists themselves may schedule time in the studio to produce their own self-published projects. The staff consult with artists to help conceive their project as realized through the papermaking process. The artist and staff develop a working practice during production that has set a precedent for collaboration over the past thirty years.

Artist Sponsorship Residency

Dieu Donné works with collectors, supporters, and publishers of artwork through this residency, as a direct way of enabling an artist to benefit from the experience of creating work in the handmade paper. The three-day residency can be funded to further allow the artist to develop a fully-realized work or create an edition. Past artists sponsored through the residency include Lesley Dill, William Kentridge, James Siena, Richard Tuttle, and many others.
