Amy Winehouse Exhibit Opens in London’s Jewish Museum
Amy Winehouse‘s personal life is now open to the public.
London’s Jewish Museum in Camden debuted the late singer’s exhibition, “Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait,” on Tuesday, which showcases unseen photographs of Amy and her family, as well as some of her most coveted possessions from early childhood to the last monumental moments of her life and music career.
The exhibit of the five-time Grammy Award-winning star was a collaboration between the “Rehab” singer’s brother Alex and his wife, Riva, and the curator, Liz Selby.
“It’s a story that people don’t know about Amy, her family story,” Abigail Morris, the museum’s chief executive, said. “You can forget there’s a person behind the hype.”
Before Amy died in 2011 at the age of 27, the singer’s drug and alcohol addiction became front-page news. This exhibition, however, reveals the truth behind the talented, music obsessed, and family-loving celebrity who the world lost far too soon.
“Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait,” will be open until September 15.
