Marisa Rueda lives and works in London. She has an active professional life as a mixed media and installation artist. For many years Marisa's work has reflected the often volatile political situation in her native Argentina, in particular during the time of the dictatorships. During the 80's in England she was involved in the women’s movement, exhibiting in "Women's Images of Men". In 2010 Marisa worked in India in collaboration with Cristina Chaplin-Rueda, organising “Our Project”, a creative group work comprising sculptures, photographs and site installations, whilst travelling with Art Karavan.

Marisa's latest exhibitions have taken place in Buenos Aires: “Textural Narratives” was a series of sculptures and photos inspired by the dresses her mother made for her. This was followed by “Liquid City I”, an installation, and “Existence”, a video installation using the participation of the viewing public. All three were shown in the Fundación Arte x Arte. In 2013 Marisa was part of a group exhibition entitled “Arrugas” Wrinkles at the "Museo de la Mujer" (Women's Museum).
