Issue Four of 6YL explores the idea of ‘POWER’. In a year full of political unrest, natural disasters, and all-round bad things, our 54 artists have given us their interpretations of ‘POWER’ through artwork only.
To complement our theme of ‘POWER’ we have given Issue Four a Melbourne-made focus from start to finish. We wanted to support local talent; everything from our contributing artists to our printers. That’s why we’ve collaborated with McKellar Renown Press to print the publication, Allpress Studio to host the launch, Temple Brewing Company to keep us hydrated, Redwood Press for some sexy apparal & The Arts Hole to bring you Issue Four of 6YL.

Instinct is defined as ‘an innate, typically fixed pattern of behaviour in response to certain stimuli’ which is essentially the essence of what 6YL is trying to showcase. With every issue we try and curate a range of responses to a certain idea. What better challenge than to ask artists to record their initial reactions – use their instincts and give us their interpretations of our theme.
