The Jewish Museum London
Amy Winehouse was one of the most original and inspirational voices of the last ten years. Her musical career was both vibrant and turbulent as was her personal life. Sadly we lost Amy all too soon and now all we are left with is her wonderful songs and unforgettable voice and the memories we had of her.
Part of Amy's personal life was her religion. Amy was Jewish and this helped shape her as she grew up. Now the Jewish Museum has put together a very personal account of Amy's life in this exciting exhibition.
The exhibition was co produced by the museum and Amy's own brother Alex and sister in Law Riva.
His exhibition included never before seen personal items from various aspects of Amy's life such as her musical influences, her childhood toys and her eclectic fashion sense.
Many personal family photographs are included in the show which really brings Amy's life much closer to our own. It helps to turn her from the unreachable celebrity to a simple London girl. Leading a very ordinary life as most of us do, with aspirations and troubles along the way.
It is very fitting that the Jewish Museum is staging this very personal look at Amy's life as it is situated in Camden town which was where Amy lived and loved very much.
Booking is required (go to www.jewishmuseum.org.uk)
