Wisconsin-born, London-based artist Benjamin Faga (born 1986) addresses the influence of globalization, technology, and its impact on our global society. Faga often uses a variety of media (photography, installation art, sculpture, public art, video, performance art, writing, and design) while collaborating with local communities. For his installation Authentic Syracuse Faga focuses on food as an indicator of cultural diversity and identity. In the vault, Faga will create a market atmosphere with international spices on display, while the main gallery will be made to look and operate like a tourism office center where visitors can read, see, and learn about Syracuse’s many offerings as a diverse city that is home to immigrants from around the world.
