    Creative Spaces That Feel Like Home.

    Today’s residential buildings have the opportunity to serve as cultural hubs for their communities. Ray Philly aims to be both a participant in and a reflection of its neighborhood.

    Artist Interventions

    For both exterior and site-specific installations, Ray Philly is excited to partner with artists of the area and friends of Ray.

    Michelle Lopez

    We partnered with Philly-based artist Michelle Lopez for an intervention on Ray Philly’s exterior facade. Lopez was interested in playing with the corner edge of the building where it touches the sky, a portal to bigger ideals, bigger imaginative and creative space. The sky is a space that no one owns. For the sake of unity, we are all together “when under one sky.” Photo by Ethan O'Grady


    Rashid Johnson

    Rashid Johnson’s art includes autobiographical elements inspired by his early intellectual, musical and literary influences. For Ray Philly’s sunken living room, Johnson created a stacked cell system filled with plants, books, sculpture and light. Photo by Ethan O'Grady

    Ulises at Ray is located on the ground floor of Ray Philly in artist studio 104.

    Ulises at Ray

    Ulises is a bookshop and project space dedicated to artists’ books and independent art publications that explore the relationship between publics and publications. The space provides an inventory of titles not widely distributed in the United States on contemporary art, graphic design, art theory, architecture, criticism, curatorial practice, and adjacent fields. Ulises supports people who make books and expand the boundaries of what art publishing can be.

    Hosting projects, exhibitions, and residencies, Ulises’ open-ended programming considers publishing as an incubator for new forms of artistic, editorial, curatorial, and pedagogical practice. Ulises sees the democratic potential of publishing as a vehicle for activism, education, assembly, and exchange.

    Ulises at Ray is located on the ground floor of Ray Philly in artist studio 104, and is open weekly, Wednesday through Sunday from 12-6 PM.
