MCCCs James Kerney Campus Gallery Announces "Brass Rabbit And The GreyScale Economics Project" Exhibit Through May 22

Gallery now open for visits on Mondays by appointment. Artist Talk and reception to be held in person and live on the Zoom conferencing platform Tuesday, April 27, 4 - 8 p.m.

Trenton, N.J. — Mercer County Community College’s (MCCC’s) James Kerney Campus (JKC) Gallery kicks off its next in-person and virtual exhibit titled “The Greyscale Economics Project” which showcases the works of Brass Rabbit through May 22. There will be two artist talks on Tuesday, April 27. The first talk is from 4 to 6 p.m. and second from 6 to 8 p.m. The public is invited in-person by appointment or via Zoom conferencing platform. Reservations are required. Seating is limited.

Brass Rabbit is a fine artist and documentary photographer living and working in Trenton. “The Greyscale Economics Project” highlights her stories of the individuals who work in non-traditional economies, with a focus on simple barter systems, under-the-table-payments, e-commerce and illicit industries.

“We are pleased to offer the public this exhibit that combines data journalism, storytelling and photography from Brass Rabbit,” said Michael Chovan-Dalton, Director of the JKC Gallery. “The Greyscale Economics Project brings a revealing and first-person perspective to the underground economy and its social structure.”

Bending between playful imagery and hard truth, Brass Rabbit unearths differing perspectives that one may not encounter in an everyday world. She explained, “I am endlessly fascinated by money and its interwoven role in social organization. I create to answer my own questions on the social and political attitudes of my fellow Americans, attempting to find common ground beneath the many layers that separate my experience from my country and my people.”

Brass Rabbit’s works are held in several private collections and have been shown in regional and international galleries and museums. The artist got her start as a creator in documentary photography — capturing the home lives of gang members, as well as individuals involved in illicit economies along the east coast of the United States.
