The Jewish Museum in Camden, has announced an Amy Winehouse exhibition coming this summer. Amy Winehouse: a family portrait , co-curated by her brother Alex and sister-in-law Riva, will give fans a special glimpse into the private world of Winehouse and the ones she loved. It will showcase private family photos, along with other cherished personal belongings.
The exhibit runs from July 5th to September 15th. (September 14th would have marked Winehouse’s 30th birthday.)
In related news, Camden Town council approved an Amy Winehouse statue to honour the late songstress. It will be erected in the Camden borough, which will forever be associated with Winehouse. The statue, scheduled to debut this September to commemorate her 30th birthday (on the 14th), will stand in the balcony of the Roundhouse, an arts and performance venue.
NME reports that the location was selected to detract hoards of fans from flocking to the Camden home that Winehouse lived in at the time of her death.
Mitch Winehouse and the family are apparently in support of the memorial being erected in the city Amy adored and called home.
