Paris – The Last of Marilyn Monroe
La Monroe shines an exhibition that gathers the pictures of the two last photosessions of her life:

The 59 exceptional photos in this exhibit capture Marilyn Monroe soon before her death in 1962, aged 36. The photographer, Bert Stern, staged two long shoots on assignment for Vogue magazine. The first shoot, at the Bel-Air Hotel, yielded a series of remarkably sensual nudes, but the magazine decided they were inappropriate and so ordered another session with the bombshell. (Via The Economist)

Amsterdam – Gnarls Barkley live in Amsterdam MONDAY NIGHT!
They exist. And they are coming to Europe. The mysterious musical duo that catapulted to internet and then mass market fame are to perform in the flesh… and the blood. If you were addicted to "Crazy", and like the sort of acts that come labeled "Auteur", this is the concert for you. It’s probably sold out, but try your luck, someone is bound to be late/sick/no show.
When: Monday August 28
Where: Paradiso, Weteringschans 6-8

Madrid – Klimt’s Eye for Women
LAST DAYS! Running through Sep 3 is a collection of Klimt drawings of women. The expressionist master drew women in all their guises: old ones, young ones, socialites, prostitutes, dressed, naked, pregnant – and he created an unsettling intimacy that teeters nervously between astute observation and voyeurism.
When: through Sep 3
Where: Fundacion Mapfre Av. General Perón, 40, portal D, 1ª planta  phone + 34 91 581 15 96

Oslo – All Ibsen all the Time
Ibsen plays storm the capital’s stages with 17 productions and 12 guest performances. Most of these will be accessible to non Norwegian speakers:

While some of the performances are in the original language and performed by Norwegian companies, most of them are staged by visiting companies, based on translations of Ibsen into other languages. The non-English performances are either subtitled or simultaneously translated by competent translators, so for once language is really not a barrier to appreciating good performances (via What’s on When)

When: 24 Aug – 16 Sep
Where: Oslo and Arbiens, check the website for programme and ticket details
