Taneesha Ahmed is a practicing artist and curator who lives and works in Manchester. Since graduating from Leeds University she has adopted a holistic approach, which focuses on authorship and collaboration. She is an interdisciplinary artist and her work often is resolved through film, performance and drawings.
Most recently she was awarded the Micro Commision fund from the Cornerhouse, which was supported by Paul Hamlyn, for her investigation into artistic and curatorial collaborative practice. Context specificity is a cohesive theme in her work, where she is interested in peripheral and alternate sites that exist in the public realm.
She is also one half of Ahmed and Carpenter. Ahmed and Carpenter are an artist and curator collective who have been exhibiting and co-ordinating shows around Manchester.
