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

Photographer Harry Papadopoulos takes a step back in time to explore the glamour and grit of the 1980s post punk music scene, in new exhibition What Presence!
Taking place at the McManus Art Gallery & Museum, Dundee, the new exhibition offers a glimpse behind the lens of one of Scotland’s most legendary music photographers, featuring the likes of Aztec Camera, The Birthday Party, The Specials and The Clash.
A self-taught photographer, Papadopoulos began his career by selling photographs to gig-goers outside the Apollo in the late 1970s. He later became a staff photographer for Sounds magazine where he captured a number of music stars on film: from Blondie to David Bowie, the Associates to Devo, by way of Joy Division, Bryan Ferry and Siouxsie and the Banshees. A cult figure on the music scene, Papadopoulos’ London flat became a second home to fellow Scots migrants such as Orange Juice, Aztec Camera, Josef K and The Bluebells.
What Presence! is a touring exhibition from the Streetlevel Photoworks in Glasgow, which was co-curated by singer from The Bluebells, Ken McCluskey. Taking place until Sunday 11th August, the exhibition will be accompanied by a series of talks, impromptu music events and workshops.
