BIOGRAPHY / Merray Gerges studied art history at NSCAD and journalism at King’s in Halifax, where she co-founded and co-edited CRIT, a free biannual criticism broadsheet. In 2015 she attended Superscript, a conference at the Walker Art Center that deliberated over the futures of art criticism, as a Hyperallergic mentee and was the inaugural writer-in-residence at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia. In summer 2016 she was Canadian Art‘s editorial resident, and is now assistant editor there. Her reporting, criticism and lectures have ranged from discussing the radical potential (and shortcomings) of intersectional feminist memes and ASMR connections between zit-popping and slime videos to art-world race politics and tokenism.
