Amy Winehouse Exhibition Opens in London
LONDON -- An exhibition that promises to provide an intimate portrait of Amy Winehouse has opened at the Jewish Museum here in the British capital.
Entitled "Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait," the exhibition includes items from her childhood, her time at stage school and her short-lived but successful career in music.
Co-curated by the Grammy-winning singer's brother Alex and sister-in-law Riva, the show aims to provide "an intimate and moving exhibition about a much loved sister."
Captions for the items have all been penned by Alex, and the show gives unprecedented access to Amy’s personal belongings that celebrate "her passion for music, fashion, Sudoku, Snoopy, London and her family."
"Amy was close to her family and had a strong sense of her Jewish roots and heritage," the museum said in a statement. "Among the various objects on display, the exhibition will show many unseen photographs of Amy’s family life -- Friday night dinners, Alex’s Bar Mitzvah and vintage photographs of their beloved grandmother Cynthia."
"Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait" runs at the Jewish Museum in the Northern London neighborhood of Camden, where the star lived, until Sept. 15.
