May 5, 2017
Rauschenberg’s A Quake in Paradise (Labyrinth) will be on view at MASS MoCA from May 28, 2017–May 26, 2018. This site specific work invites viewers to move through — and become a part of — a maze-like installation of panels. This will be the first time the work is on view in over a decade. It is shown in tandem with The Lurid Attack of the Monsters from the Postal News Aug 1875 , a work from the Kabal American Zephyr series, which was inspired by the macabre work of nineteenth-century Japanese woodblock printmaker Tsukioka Yoshitoshi .
