Fashion designer and artist Ma Ke says our planet is the "source and destiny" of lives. A mission of her fashion house Wu Yong is the discovery, conservation and revival of Chinese folk arts and crafts, in which she sees intimate, harmonious relations between people and nature. Her work, Wu Yong/The Earth, is a collection of clothing inspired by the rich traditions of folk costumes she has encountered over the years during journeys across the country, especially in areas inhabited by minority ethnic groups. Ma says the goal of making her garments is to help viewers rediscover a simple, pure and genuine way of living, a life that has been lost to the high-paced pursuit of efficiency, as well as reconnect with a close, earnest link to lands maintained over centuries. Ma's cloth designs are on show as part of Convivial exhibition at Today Art Museum in Beijing, through Oct 8, which explores the communication of different life forms and conditions, and features eight designers and artists. Their works contemplate designs that are human-oriented, along with the relationships between digital technology and space, and artificial intelligence and machine consciousness. The diversity of their creative approaches paints a landscape of sustainability, marked by respect for nature, against a broad context of regeneration of knowledge.

10 am-6 pm, closed on Mondays. 32 Baiziwan Lu, Chaoyang district, Beijing. 010-5876-0600.
