OPEN CALL : Les Cassettes

7 August 2014 - 1 September 2014 Shop

This is an open call for cassette-based artworks which will be presented as part of Les Cassettes; a one day event at NewBridge Books based around the collection, display and sale of cassette-based art works.

The exhibition will take place on Saturday 27th September 2014 to coincide with the second International Cassette Store Day.

You are invited to use the medium of tape-cassettes to produce an original art object. All artworks will be made available for sale to the public for one day only via the medium of a pop-up cassette shop in NewBridge Books.

Submission criteria:

–  All artworks must be cassette–tape based i.e. sound recordings / designed cassettes with inlay / art objects etc.

–  A minimum of 2 cassette-based works must be submitted for the project (at least one for display & sale and one for holding in the Les Cassettes archive)

–  A description of your submission must be received by Monday 1st September 2014

–  Physical artworks must be received by Monday 15th September 2014

If you have an idea that does not fit into the above criteria please contact us at with your proposal. 

Les Cassettes is an event initiated by Stabbing Les, a multi-disciplinary art collective and the North East’s foremost fictional band. Les Cassettes and International Cassette Store Day will be the catalyst for a series of reflective collaborations with national and international artists.

Unfortunately at this time we are unable to cover the production costs of any artworks submitted for this project. All cassettes will be available to purchase on the day. The artists will receive proceeds from all sales minus a 30% commission taken by Newbridge Books.
