UB Art Gallery

The FBI began gathering intelligence on Mesches in 1945 and continued writing about him until 1972, detailing information about his political and personal activities. Mesches integrates actual pages from this 760-page dossier with newspaper clippings, photographs, paintings, drawings, and handwritten texts to create vividly colored contemporary “Illuminated Manuscripts.”

Organized by P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center/MoMA.
