Chris Dolman is in the group exhibition, Without Fail, curated by Boe-Lin Bastian, at Incinerator Gallery, Aberfeldie, VIC.

At a time when a sense of success, false or imagined, is projected from all directions; Instagram accounts, corporate branding and government slogans, Without Fail celebrates art that navigates anxious terrain with a philosophy of openness and stubborn optimism. Exhibiting artists: Tully Arnot, Dord Burrough, Chris Dolman, Matthew Harris, Kate Mitchell, Danielle Reynolds and Tania Smith. 2 April – Sunday, 19 May.
