Merray Gerges writes around art rather than about it. She studied art history at NSCAD and journalism at King’s University 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. From 2019-2020, she was the inaugural editorial fellow at C Magazine, where she conceptualized three themed issues addressing systemic change post-Canada 150, and commissioned their features. Her writing has appeared in Canadian Art, C Magazine, MOMUS, Hyperallergic and others, and has tended to pay more attention to art’s contexts rather than its contents.
