Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait

London’s Jewish Museum opens a new exhibition this week, taking an intimate look at the life of the late artist Amy Winehouse. Supported by Amy’s family, the museum has been given unprecedented access to the singer’s belongings, including her guitar, record collection and iconic outfits. Located in the heart of Camden, Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait celebrates Amy’s passion for music, fashion, London and her family.

The exhibition centres around four themes: Judaism, Family and Home; Amy and London, Music and the artist's status as a Style Icon. Amongst the items on display is a pin-up style gingham dress, designed by Amy as part of her collaboration with Fred Perry. 

Amy's brother, Alex Winehouse, played a major role in the exhibition and says: "I hope, in this most fitting of places that the world gets to see this other side not only to Amy, but to our typical Jewish family." Alex is also Creative Director of the Amy Winehouse Foundation, set up in Amy's memory to prevent the effects of drug and alcohol misuse on young people. Fred Perry continues to support the foundation through a collaborative collection, as well as the auction of 60 customised shirts by famous fans of the brand, including The Specials, Damon Albarn and Bradley Wiggins.

Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait runs from 3rd July - 15th September 2013. For further information and tickets, visit: www.jewishmuseum.org.uk/Amy
