WORK WITH DISSOLVE
We're always seeking to engage with interesting ideas for essays, interviews, photos, and artwork for DISSOLVE. We will consider exhibition reviews, but we ask that they somehow deviate from more typical exhibition reviews. For example, we will consider exhibition reviews of performances, one-day events, atypical art openings, etc. If you would like to review a museum exhibition or a gallery opening, please let us know in your pitch how your review will take on a new approach to the typical review format.
For all submissions, please submit your pitch of no more than 500 words. Please indicate the anticipated length of the work, the format of the piece, and if you will need any assistance with illustration or photos. We encourage writing samples.

August Issue Prompt:
Cartography is the study and practice of mapping: charting or bringing together a set of elements or qualities according to an ideal, formula, or model (conceptually, diagrammatically, and socially).
Consider how spaces, ways of movement, experiences, and routes become entangled in forms of knowledge production. Many mapping projects present social imaginaries, determining topographies and social structures of power which lead to alternative imaginations of space, place, and the body.
What can cartographies do in social, visual, and textual imaginaries? This prompt is intended to be a point of departure and responses are invited to take the form of written or visual work.
