Merray Gerges writes around art rather than about it. She studied art history at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design 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. She is now editorial fellow at C Magazine, where she is conceptualizing and commissioning a year of themed issues addressing systemic change—the people who push for it, the structures within which they operate, and the discourse around this work. Her work has appeared in Canadian Art, C Magazine, MOMUS, Hyperallergic and others, and has tended to address to art’s contexts rather than its contents.
