Carly Dodd – Woven Regalia

Posted on: Wed 4 Nov 2020

Tarnanthi is an annual celebration of contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art and a flagship program of the Art Gallery of South Australia.

Carly Tarkari Dodd is a Kaurna, Narungga and Ngarrindjeri artist from Adelaide specialising in traditional weaving techniques.

Combining this medium with painting, Dodd examines injustice against Indigenous people through history through regalia – the distinctive clothing and ornaments worn by royalty.

In a new ongoing iteration of AGSA’s Studio, Carly is providing material for attendees to weave their own regalia.

Carly joined Radio Adelaide’s Tom Mann to discuss this exciting new work. For Tarnanthi, The Studio is open to the public daily during the school holidays, and on weekends during the school term. Sessions are on the hour, register on arrival. Tarnanthi ends January 31st 2021.
