about the Uranian PHALANSTERY: In 1958 Richard Tyler, artist, initiated a small and free press in the basement of 330 East 4th Street, New York City. In 1974 with the support of his partner and lifelong collaborator Dorothea Baer Tyler along with 20 other artists he incorporated, in two contiguous Lower East Side tenements, a shrine devoted to art. He named the organization the Uranian Phalanstery combining the astrological influences of creativity and intuition, which he extracted as Uranian qualities, with the mutually supportive communal idea of a phalanstery. This dialogue which was started in the 1950s still lives today in Hamilton Heights, Manhattan.

As a community we make books, paintings, sculptures, music, film, dance, graphics, clothing, fine art prints, photographs and host events. We are committed to providing space and resources to artists of all mediums, encouraging a deeper sense of sharing, collaboration, and cocreation. more
