Born in Moscow, Margarita Gluzberg has lived in London since 1979. She studied at the Ruskin School of Art, University of Oxford, and the Royal College of Art, London. While studying, she worked on theatre productions as a designer and illustrated two children’s books.


Over the last two decades, her work has been presented at major contemporary art spaces that include the MAC/VAL, Paris; CAC, Vilnius; Rooseum, Malmö; KAdE Kunsthal, The Netherlands; Lunds Konsthall, Lund; British School, Rome (where she was a Wingate Scholar); Drawing Room, London; and Site Gallery, Sheffield. In 2016 her Wellcome Trust project Rock On Bones, a series of multi-media Performance Lectures, was staged at the De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill; Performance Studio, London and the Royal College of Art. Her most recent solo exhibition In Paradise at Pushkin House, London was a ‘biogra-fictional’ project that marked 40 years of her life in the UK.
