As part of The Barnes Foundation’s multi-part project Person of the Crowd: The Contemporary Art of Flânerie, performance artist Zachary Fabri will present Mourning Stutter, a performance work consisting of a series of walks and performative actions exploring the process of mourning in response to African American murders. The work will be presented in four public spaces in Philadelphia: Rittenhouse Square, Washington Square, Logan Circle, and Franklin Square.

These performances are free and open to the public.

Person of the Crowd captures city life through a gallery exhibition, newly commissioned public installations and performances, and citizen-created photos and videos. Featuring over 50 artists including Marina Abramović, Jenny Holzer, Zhang Huan, and the Guerilla Girls, the project invites audiences to become contemporary flâneurs through activities such as photography and walking tours.
