In Monologues, visual artists Moyra Davey and Julia Scher construct themselves in words.
New York–based photographer Moyra Davey often uses sequential, serial form to capture the details of her domestic surroundings. Here she faces the camera to escort the viewer through a wittily observant tour of her own history of psychiatric sessions, a spoken routine that amounts to the standard therapy duration of Fifty Minutes.

Now based in Cologne, Julia Scher first met Wexner Center audiences in 1989, when her Occupational Placement video installation placed the just-completed building under the gaze of an interactive surveillance system. In No, I Never Lip-Sync’d (completed in the center's Art and Tech studio in 2004), Scher again engages in a game of disclosing and concealing, using the gambit of lip-syncing both to speak from the heart and to channel the sentiments of others.
