The Brain Fuzz guys mets up with Paul Stephen Benjamin during his exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia last December for a thoughtful conversation on his his work, process, and creative path. They explore the balance between life and work, audience interaction and intentionality, and strategies for collecting televisions.

In April, Benjamin was awarded the $25,000 Southern Prize from the Atlanta-based South Arts. He received his BA from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and his MFA from Georgia State University. He is a recent recipient of the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia Working Artist Project award and was also recipient of the 2014 Artadia Award. His work was included in the 2017 exhibition “Fictions” at the Studio Museum in Harlem, and has been exhibited at the High Museum of Art, Atlanta Contemporary, {Poem 88}, and other venues.
