Following its successful London Pop-Up Exhibition in 2012, this year CAMPOBAG's "Bring Art Go" has teamed up with Second Floor Studios & Arts, located near the Thames Barrier in Greenwich for its 2013 world tour. The collaboration brings Taiwanese designers together with artists from England, Spain, Italy, and Hong Kong to explore the topic of "Sharing the Love," accomplishing this by a joint exhibition at London's No Format Gallery from July 15 to 21.
 
This project will also feature designers Ying-zi Lin and Ling-zhen Li's work, "Interactive Love," which will allow artists and the public to come together to create a new work using each individual's favorite colors. At the completion of the exhibit, this new work will be upcycled into environmentally friendly bags, allowing it to continue spread a message of love. Furthermore, CAMPOBAG will exchange gifts with Londoners and share Taipei's recent history with the purpose of demonstrating how Taiwan's capital is using the arts to fuel urban regeneration. Through this interaction, CAMPOBAG hopes to encourage London's artists and the general public to visit Taiwan to promote cultural exchange and to learn about and even engage in Taipei's urban regeneration.
 
Additionally, the exhibition includes award-winning brand Vingt-six, for which designer Zhang Pei employs the use of pleated skirts in her work to create a line of chiffon bags, Hong Kong designer Yeung Sau Lun's installation entitled "Earth Protector," and metalworking artist D. Fish of the brand EACH ONE, whose work builds on the everyday concept of metal buttons. Besides collaborating with local artists to create new works, the team from Taiwan has already visited London's creative mecca, Brick Lane, to introduce their works and share their experiences with the arts in Asia.
 
There will be an opening reception at the No Format Gallery on Thursday, July 18 at 6pm as well as a closing party on July 21 at 5pm. The CAMPOBAG team will be joined by local artists Irma Pellegrini, Vanesa Longchamp, Shannon Idzikowska, Sisetta Zappone, and Amparo Climent, who will also share their works of love. All are welcome to come and experience Bring Art Go's unique forms of expression.
