Museums use objects to tell stories. It sounds simple but it’s complicated.  

Objects can tell multiple stories from many points of view. So, who chooses the story? Which story is the truth? In museums, curators choose an interpretation but 1×4 turns this upside down.

Each object in this exhibition tells four distinct stories. You can listen to or read each of the four stories… or some… or none and just enjoy the beauty of the objects. Every story is the truth about the object and is a valid way to view the object, but they are all different.

Look at history through different eyes as 1X4 tours to Victoria for the first time, on show at Yarra Ranges Regional Museum. Join us for talks, tours and programs that will encourage you to see objects in new and creative ways.

 Prepare for your visit: 

Rather than labels on a wall, the secrets of 1X4 are revealed via your mobile phone or tablet by visiting 1× If you would like to delve deeper, pack your headphone for an audio tour.
