Amy Winehouse celebrated with new art trail and exhibition

London's Jewish Museum will trace her life and career in her home of Camden

An art trail in Amy Winehouse’s beloved hometown of Camden will celebrate the musician’s life and trace her Jewish history, ending in an installation at the Jewish Museum. The exhibition Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait will also be on display.

Abigail Morris, Director of the Jewish Museum London said: “Aside from being an immensely talented, iconic and inspirational singer, Amy was also a Jewish girl from North London. It is fitting that the Jewish Museum in her beloved Camden Town should be the place to tell her story.

“Following its immense success around the world, we are delighted to be bringing our Amy Winehouse exhibition back to London. Our street art trail is an exciting new way to explore Amy’s impact on her local community and we are keen to celebrate her legacy through the work of these outstanding street artists.”

The art trail, in collaboration with Global Street Art, will feature pieces inspired by Winehouse created by artists such as Captain Kris, Mr Cenz, Philth and Amara Por Dios across Camden Town. The trial will end with an art installation by Winehouse family friend Pegasus, titled “Love Is A Losing Game”. The artist previously created “Fall Angel” shortly after the singer’s death in 2011.

An exhibition in the Jewish Museum will feature elements of Winehouse’s background and Jewish history, with photos from Shabbat dinners, the singer in the uniform of the Jewish Girls Brigade, some personal belongings and a map of her family tree and its course across London. The exhibit was originally shown in 2013 and returns after an international tour of Amy Winehouse: Family Portrait, co-curated with her brother Alex and sister-in-law Riva. 

The Amy Winehouse Street Art Trail will run from March 15 – June 4 2017. The exhibition runs from March 16 to September 24 at the Jewish Museum.
