What a great word! It’s an adjective, describing animals who emerge at twilight.

It’s also the title of a new exhibition at City Gallery which is part of Melbourne Town Hall. We went to the opening on Thursday night but will go back for a proper look soon. The launch was packed, packed, packed!

The exhibition is curated byJohn Kean, artist and curator formerly of Melbourne Museum but now freelancing. The exhibition celebrates familiar and not so familiar crepuscular urban dwellers. I took photos of just a few of them…

It was a busy week for John and partner Jackie Kerin. While John was celebrating the living (okay, so with some taxidermied, photographic, painterly assistance), Jackie was in the hills celebrating the first showings of a film about a lady and a lyrebird in the 1930s. More details on Jackie’s launch here.
