Robert Rauschenberg’s A Quake in Paradise (Labyrinth) from 1994, invites viewers to move through — and become a part of — a maze-like installation of panels printed with the artist’s signature layers of mechanically reproduced imagery. It is shown in tandem with The Lurid Attack of the Monsters from the Postal News Aug 1875, a 1981 sculpture from Rauschenberg’s Kabal American Zephyr series incorporating antique saws and that is both threatening and playful.
