On Equal Terms - Exhibit by Susan Eisenberg


On Equal Terms:
Women in Skilled Trades 35 Years & Still Organizing
Exhibit by Susan Eisenberg
September 29 - November 1
Opening Reception: October 3, 6:00-8:00 pm
Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural and Educational Center
107 Suffolk Street #312, New York City

"On Equal Terms" is a touring mixed media art installation by Susan Eisenberg exhibiting in New York City at the Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural and Educational Center, Sunday, September 29 - Friday, November 1, 2013, with support from the Berger-Marks Foundation. An opening reception celebrating tradeswomen will be held Thursday, October 3, 6:00-8:00 pm.

SE"On Equal Terms" uses audio, poetry, found objects, photography, banners, historical artifacts, and 3-D mixed media –– including a plywood bathroom shack with graffiti; a "My Kids Know Which Bridges in Town Are Mine!" cake; and Stella, a life-sized figure on a ladder in a diamond hardhat –– to bring viewers into the experiences of women who work on construction sites. Thirty-five years after affirmative guidelines issued by President Carter opened construction apprenticeships and jobs to women –– that should have led to women holding 25% of construction trades jobs ––  women are still only 2.5% of that workforce. The gap between policy expectation and policy outcome inspire the installation.

A multi-disciplinary artist, author, policy analyst and licensed electrician, Susan Eisenberg is a Resident Artist/Scholar at Brandeis University’s Women’s Studies Research Center (WSRC), where she directs the On Equal Terms Project. The installation launched at the WSRC gallery in 2008, and exhibited most recently at the Smithsonian-affiliated Michigan State University Museum. Developed with a "Liberty and Justice for All" grant from Mass Humanities, "On Equal Terms" uses personal testimony and the arts as springboards for education, discussion, and action about employment equity, challenging viewers to consider the difference between identical treatment and equal treatment.
