Thirteen young artists, thirteen different sensibilities: this is what Barnum is. The collective born from the common experience of the academic studies and the coexistence in the same atelier. The force of the group is the difference that identify each one of the members, a difference that become an opportunity of development.
The main objective of Barnum is the realization of an original and authentic artistic vision, through a contemporary way. The name Barnum came from the famous circus director Phineas Taylor Barnum. This name want to make reference to the collective’s mood, a merry and jovial environment, without overlooking to an introspecting necessity.
