A Huge Amy Winehouse Retrospective Exhibit Will Hit Melbourne In October

July 2017 marks the 6th anniversary of the prodigiously talented Amy Winehouse‘s tragic and untimely passing (SIX YEARS), but the British crooner’s legacy still lives large in the minds of fans and music aficionados alike.
Back in 2013, Winehouse’s considerable personal collection of outfits, records, guitars, and other assorted memorabilia was collated into a sprawling, and quite comprehensive museum exhibition by the Jewish Museum London, with help from her brother Alex, and her sister-in-law Riva. Later this year, the touring exhibit will finally head for our shores, giving Australian fans a chance at some rare insight into the troubled star’s life.
Amy Winehouse: Family Portrait (1983 – 2011)‘ arrives at the Jewish Museum of Australia this coming October, with Melbourne becoming the latest stop on its global tour, following stints in San Francisco, Vienna, Tel Aviv, and Amsterdam.
The exhibit features personal items connecting Winehouse’s Jewish heritage to her life and family; each piece in the collection features captions personally penned by the late singer’s brother, Alex.
The exhibition itself is split into four sections: ‘Life in London,’ ‘fashion,’ ‘musical influences,’ and ‘faith.’ The whole shebang is set to a soundtrack sourced from a mixtape Amy compiled when she was just 13.
Winehouse released the critical and commercial smash hit album ‘Back to Black‘ in 2006. The album earned her 5 Grammy awards, making her the first British woman to achieve that feat.
She passed away on July 23rd, 2011 at the age of just 27.

Amy Winehouse: Family Portrait‘ is scheduled to run from October 22nd, 2017 until March 25th, 2018 at the Jewish Museum of Australia in the Melbourne suburb of St Kilda.
