Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait
16 March – 24 September 2017
Alex Winehouse curates an exhibition of photographs and objects about his sister Amy.
First shown at the museum in 2013, the exhibition returns after a four-year world tour to locations including Tel Aviv, Vienna and San Francisco.
Drawn from Amy's personal belongings, it features photographs of her family life – including shots of Friday night Shabbat dinners and her brother's bar mitzvah – ticket stubs from gigs she went to and the vintage bar from her Camden home.
Her extensive record collection is also on display, as is her guitar and a Grammy she was awarded posthumously in 2011.
A Luella dress Amy wore at Glastonbury in 2008 is joined by other key items from her wardrobe, such as the outfit from her Tears Dry on Their Own video and a gingham piece she designed for her Fred Perry collection.
Street Art Trail
To celebrate the exhibition's homecoming, the museum has organised an Amy-themed street art trail to run through the streets of Camden until 4 June, 2017. Produced in collaboration with Global Street Art, the trail features works by leading names such as Captain Kris, Mr Cenz, Phil and Amara Por Dios, and culminates with a new installation by Pegasus, the street artist responsible for Fallen Angel (a tribute to Amy that appeared in Camden just after her death).
The funds for the street art trail were raised through our crowdfunding platform, Art Happens.
