Co-curated by the Jewish Museum, London and Winehouse’s brother Alex and sister-in-law Riva, the family gave the Jewish Museum unprecedented access to Winehouse’s belongings, including her guitar, record collection, and iconic outfits, which will be on view. The exhibition celebrates her passion for music, fashion, London, and her family. Many unseen photographs of Winehouse’s family life will also be on display, revealing her strong Jewish roots and heritage as well as her close family relationships.
Additionally, an exhibition of contemporary art organized by The CJM—titled You Know I’m No Good after a track on Winehouse’s album Back to Black (2006)—created in response to the Amy Winehouse phenomenon will be on view in an adjoining gallery. The exhibition includes work by Rachel Harrison, and new commissions by Jennie Ottinger, and Jason Jägel.
