Merray Gerges writes around art rather than about it. She studied art history at NSCAD and journalism at King’s in Halifax, where she co-founded and co-edited CRIT, a free biannual criticism publication. She was editorial resident at Canadian Art in 2016, and assistant editor there from 2017 to 2019. She is now editorial fellow at C Magazine, where she is conceptualizing and commissioning a year of themed issues addressing systemic change. Her work has appeared in Canadian Art, C Magazine, Momus, Hyperallergic, and more, addressing issues ranging from the radical potential (and shortcomings) of intersectional feminist memes and art selfies, to artworld race politics.
