Amy Winheouse’s personal belongings,such as clothes,books,albums and family photographs,will be displayed at Jewish Museum in Camden,London until September.
‘Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait’ is co-curated by Winehouse’s brother Alex and his wife Riva,alongside curator Liz Selby,reported Sun Online.
“We wanted to show Amy in a slightly different light to how she has been perceived in the media,” Selby said. Amy’s brother said in a statement,”Amy was someone who was incredibly proud of her Jewish London roots. I hope,in this most fitting of places,that the world gets to see this other side not just to Amy,but to our typical Jewish family.”
Alex collected items which are currently on display and wrote touching captions for each of them. Among the items he gathered,there were many family and school photos which were kept in the late singer’s suitcase. Visitors of the exhibition will find the collections very touching.
The museum’s chief executive,Abigail Morris,said,”Every time I go around there is something else that catches me. It is a really honest exhibition and you get a sense of the real person – as well as being a big,famous icon she was from a very strong,loving family and that really comes across.”
Amy was found dead in her apartment on July 23,2011 because of alcohol poisoning. The memorabilia exhibition to remember the Grammy-winning singer will be held on July 3 until September 15.
