Curated by her family, Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait intimately explores the mind of an iconic musician while celebrating her outstanding impact on the world.

Curated by her brother Alex and sister-in-law Riva, the exhibition consists of an outdoor and indoor element.

Outdoors, the Jewish Museum London, in collaboration with Global Street Art, are creating an Amy Street Art Trail featuring Camden street artists Captain Kris, Mr Cenz, Philth and Amara Por Dios. Camden Town was her home for many years as well as where she died of accidental alcohol poisoning in 2011.

In the museum, a collection of original concert tickets, festival passes, badges, family photos, clothes and other intimate memorabilia will give a more personal telling along with Winehouse’s own vinyl collection.

“Amy’s family have allowed 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. Among the objects on display you can see many photographs of Amy’s family life – Friday night dinners, Alex’s barmitzvah and vintage photographs of their beloved grandmother Cynthia.”

Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait is open from 16 March – 24 September at the Jewish Museum London.
