"Museum Muses: Barton Lidic Benes and Justine Cooper" pairs two artists who explore issues of collecting and classification. Benes collects bits of rubbish and refuse left behind by celebrities and assembles them into his own contemporary cabinets of curiosity. Cooper spent a year as artist-in-residence at New York American Museum of Natural History, photographing the institution's collections and labyrinth of storage spaces. Hear Justine Cooper speak about her photography series "Saved by Science" and Sarah Tanguy speak about Barton Benes' whimsical artwork and collections.

JUSTINE COOPER investigates the intersections between science, medicine, and culture. In previous work, she combined media typically used by artists such as animation, video, installation and photography with scientific imaging technologies such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), DNA sequencing, ultrasound imaging and scanning electron microscopy (SEM).

SARAH TANGUY recently curated "Food Matters: Explorations in Contempary Art," a group exhibition in which Barton Lidic Benes' work was featured. She is a curator for the "Art in Embassies program" as well as an independent curator and critic based in Washington, D.C. Tanguy's current projects include "Vanishing Boundaries," a joint U.S./Lithuania photography exhibition; "Taken for Looks," an all-photography, food-inspired exhibition; "Breaking Bread," a Cuba/Russia/U.S. exhibition; and an ongoing exhibition series for the American Center for Physics.
