The Barnes Foundation presents a 1920s-themed opening party for the multi-part exhibition Person of the Crowd: The Contemporary Art of Flânerie. The event will offer guests a first look at the exhibition, as well as strolling performers.

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 inside the Barnes galleries and throughout the city to become contemporary flâneurs through activities such as photography and walking tours.
