Kim NorrenSchunck, a government arts centre in The Netherlands, is currently exhibiting with the accompaniment of Pink Floyd's music.

The exhibition, cunningly called "Pink", is the work of artist Kim van Norren. It started a month ago and is due to finish on December 31st, 2012. Norren tends to work with life-size paintings, and also incorporates her own lyrics alongside the Floyd's music, including Us and Them and Another Brick In The Wall.

Amongst their Floyd related activities in August, is a lecture with author Bobby Hassall talking about his experiences. This takes place on August 28th, at 8pm, and reservations can be made online here. Hassall was the author of the excellent Pink Floyd Backstage (reviewed here), which is a fascinating look at the live Floyd experience from a quite unique perspective, so the lecture should be fun.

Three days earlier, on 25th August, there will be live performances mainly focused on Pink Floyd, and you can find out more through this link. The event sounds interesting - the start of the new school year is marked by this presentation where hundreds of scolars of the various school music departments perform in the open air on the Pancratiusplein and also play some gigs in Schunck itself. The central theme is the music of Pink Floyd, to give attention to the Pink exposition of artist Kim van Norren. Her wall sized paintings are also shown in the music school.

This all takes place in the deep south of The Netherlands and very near Germany (Aachen is a big place). More details of the arts centre, and "Pink", can be found at
