How can artists imagine and create new worlds together when our borders are closed? 
Multi-disciplinary artist Alys Longley has been working with New York-based DotDot Digital Studios and Chilean artist Máximo Corvalán-Pincheira to lead projects that span art museums, theatres and virtual spaces connecting artists across the world in diverse languages and on all continents. 
Their project Let Us Drink the New Wine, Together! will simultaneously show at the Museum of Contemporary Art Santiago, as a live performance in Auckland, and in a digital space that is part space for people to meet and spend time together, part online game, part gallery space and part dance show. 
To create this work Alys and Máximo have developed a postal art project that involves a series of envelopes travelling across all continents of the world, keeping artists in touch with each other and continuing to collaborate, despite border closures.


Dr Alys Longley is an Associate Professor of Dance and has 20 years experience in creating live performance, artist books, installations, international collaborations and artistic research projects.
